A spring portrait
For me, a big part of what makes Horsham such a wonderful place to live is that we have an incredible restaurant right on our doorstep. Restaurant Tristan is a gem and I was so happy to do this drawing of inspirational owner-manager Candice Potter. We've had some wonderful evenings there and each dish that comes out of Tristan's kitchen is a work of art.
This study is done in charcoal, heightened with white chalk on toned paper. These types of studies are an affordable gift idea and a great way to recognise someone special. If you are interested in commissioning a portrait please contact me.
