Portrait Paintings / by Neil Condron

While a photograph might last a lifetime, a painted portrait will be cherished for generations.

These are samples of my portraiture in oil and pastel, in varying styles.

As with all artists, Ideally I like to paint from life with my subject posed in the studio. However more frequently I tend to take a series of photographs (try and get a child to sit still!). Occasionally, if the photograph is good enough, I will work from supplied references.
