Here are some work-in-progress shots plus a web link about Colin.
As you can see – Colin is well deserving of a portrait in recognition very significant contribution to the arts, scholarship, and a life committed to building strong Australia/China links. That Colin is included in a speech to the Australian Parliment by the Premier of China speaks volumes!
Colin is true gentleman and a very good subject to paint. I’m having a good time and I thank Colin for his willingness to sit for me!
The painting is 1.9 m x 2.9 m and is oil on linen. The first photo gives a view of the entire painting and the rest are deatil shots. More photos as the painting progresses!
