Ken Taylor - portraits
I took up portrait drawing and painting in 2008 after retiring from a career as an engineer with Shell.
I became a part-time student of portraiture at Nicholas Beer's Sarum Studio in Salisbury in 2015, and now work largely in oil.
Lockdown led to work at home, first on this portrait of Annunziata. Anthony Connolly, a professional portrait artist, set the task and coached students via zoom.
I also tackled a double portrait: Rosie and Steve on their wedding day. It was experimental for me as it was the first time I had painted a double portrait and it is smaller than life size. Rosie and Steve were very pleased to accept it as their wedding present.

I do no obligation commissions (if you don’t like it you don’t pay).
