Artist's description:

This painting has turned out to be a portrait quite by accident. My creative approach at the moment is such that it allows chance to play a major roll. When I began this painting I had no idea what I wanted to paint, I just started making random brush strokes, with varied length and intensity. Some were curly and circular while others were more straight and intense. I allow myself to enjoy in their aesthetic beauty, as if I was writing in some beautiful script unknown to me. When I allow myself to play like this, various forms and ideas begin to unfold themselves to me in the very act of mark making. In just such a way this face appeared on the canvas almost before I even had time to start consciously painting it. Before the face had emerged though, the painting was beginning to look like the starry night to me, and in order to suggest this chance aspect of the painting- the fact that it could just as easily have been a painting of something completely different- I named it 'In the dead of Night'.

If you have any questions about the artwork, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.

This painting was executed on a 100% Daler Rowney cotton canvas (100% acid free for durability), ready for hanging, using high-quality, professional Winsor & Newton artists' oil colour.
