Artist's description:

This is an original painting of 40 x 30 cm (15 3/4" x 11 13/16"). It's size is almost twice the size of a sheet of A4 paper, and suitable for all kinds of wall spaces.

It's painted with oil paint, acrylic paint and ink on linen. It is heavy quality linen stretched on wooden bars, and wired on the back, ready to hang. It can be left unframed if you wish; the sides are painted as well.

'Portrait in blue & red' was painted on Achill Island in Ireland, in October 2014. I went there for a month to paint in complete isolation and to gather new inspiration. This portrait is actually a self portrait of me breathing in fresh air from the Irish West Coast.

First the background was set up with acrylic and ink (the white and red details you see against the bright blue are made with pen and ink), and then the face was painted on top of that with oil paint and a tiny little brush. It is a combination of realistic traditional portrait painting and fantasy/surrealism. The combination of blue and red is absolutely vibrant.


I am taking the utmost care in packaging and shipping of my original paintings. This painting will be shipped in a double layer of bubble wrap in a rigid cardboard box.

IMPORTANT NOTE to buyers outside the EU: please be aware that there are extra costs for customs and taxes for importing goods. This bill is to be paid upon delivery of the artwork.
