Keeping me busy during lockdown

21 comments


As many of you know I am a portrait painter. I have not been able to finish a commission for the University of the West of Scotland due to Covid-19, but I have two paintings I completed just before lockdown. I noticed you had all been putting on site your creative lockdown ventures.
This is mine.

Gosh, I am in total admiration about the realism in those paintings. I am good at sculpture but would love to be able to paint, just need a good teacher. Once more, a beautiful painting, you are so talented.

They are a couple of academics. They commissioned me to paint their portraits. It took longer than expected due to Covid-19 rules.

Thanks Bloomer.
My university portrait commission will come to a stand still soon. I have the robe of office so I am able to put it on a dummy and continue with the detail of that. I also have the books etc that were on her desk. We just keep going.
