John Waterhouse inspired portraits

I remember standing and staring in awe at the ‘The Lady of Shalott’ when I saw it years ago in a London gallery. It’s a picture I had on my wall when I gave birth to my daughter at home, it’s one of those pictures which has stayed with me through my life. I have always loved the softness of the colours the mystery and the femininity shown in paintings by John Waterhouse. Here are some recent portrait images I took at my studio which were definitely inspired by his beautiful art.

A red haired teenage girl wearing a white dress with red berries in her hair. Looking at the camera holding a small branch with more red berries and green leaves. The image is dark and moody but the red of her hair and the berries make the image pop.
A young woman dressed in white with bare arms holding a thin branch which is spiky and rambling. The woman has long blonde wavy hair which falls to her waist. On her head she has two small antlers, the background is dark and the colours are dark and light with the gold of her blonde hair and white dress in contrast to the darkness of the rest of the image.
A teenage girl with long auburn hair has her arms gently folded and is looking seriously at the camera. She is wearing a dark green velvet jacket which has red and green patterned strips on it. In her hair she has red berries almost like a crown. Her expression is one of innocence and at the same time strength. Holding herself tall she appears to have a quiet confidence.
A young woman is looking off to the side, she is slim and wears a white lacy dress. Her hair is long down to her waist and is loose blonde hair.

Happy Halloween

The cracks are starting to show…

A devastating life changing event, a driver under the influence drove in to him and knocked him off his push bike and crushed his right leg which resulted in major surgery implanting a metal rod and everything in his life being put on hold. Everyone can understand and talk about the leg break, the steel rod and the healing process but the unseen is the psychological damage and torment of someone else taking away some independence and choice and changing your body and your life forever.
