Artist's description:

This series of paint studies led to my final painting head study 29. Resigning from his post in 2013 was certainly a moment in history which I felt I had to capture. I`m not sure as to why as I wouldn`t consider my self to be a deeply religious person, but merely an observer, people watcher. Its unusual for me to name the subject, as this often taints views as to how I`ve painted them.
After Initially drawing a number of charcoal, and pencil drawings (often ending up in the bin.) I begin the wash stage, working out light and dark, and the strongest points to keep, meld change etc. Trying to recreate fluffy hair, with a quick gestural mark, looking at earthier tones, longer face.
Oil wash on Victorian story book paper, evident page seam, and thread holes. Floating mount in white box frame.
