  1. Amazing study of Ciaran. Did he sit for you? You have caught the light and shade and the strength of his facial features so well. He is without doubt, one of our finest actors. Thank you for allowing this work on line. I would love to see it

      Hey, glad you liked the content. I was talking to Colin at the opening of his exhibition a few weeks ago. He said when he eventually manages to get a few hours or a day with a subject (as they are mostly pretty high profile types so hard to pin down for too long) he does preliminary paintings, drawings from life and takes photographs. He works from these sources and then might arrange a second sitting if possible to make these amazing large paintings. I’ll pass on your praise.
