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).
