Portrait Miniatures

Lately in the studio its been serious production time.  I've been painting away at my portrait miniatures and some larger anamorphic works of Arthur Wick's bust.  The strategy is to make a bunch of them, see which ones work and why and then tweak them to work better if need be.  The above miniatures are of two specific people:  Errol Fielder and Marilyn Thompson and from these ten or so images of each, one will be chosen for the exhibition in October.

The larger anamorphic paintings are painted over some other anamporph's which failed because they weren't gridded up from the beginning.  The result is that they pop into place when you're in the sweet spot.
