Portraits & Figures (AVAILABLE)

Carol Hadfield Portraits and Figure Paintings. I've been captivated by portraits since I was a teenager - for some reason, I was granted a knack for remembering and transcribing faces. I get to use this knack every time a portrait model steps up! The balance between art and the likeness to the model is the constant challenge of this approach. If a face appeals to me, I can get lost in the art of trying to recreate it on canvas. Very often, I'm forced to work from photographs, but what I truly yearn for is live models - a living, breathing recreation just can't be topped.

Enjoy the pride and joy of my Portraits and Figures gallery - and thank you to all the past and future models!

The Courtyard

The Courtyard Hotel was the venue for our painting out in the open for a while. The painting of Deveils Peak was painted at the same location. I need more practice with buildings! We are painting in the Company Gardens at the moment and I am getting lots of practice in. Strange how the window is not centred in this building, but that is the way it is.
