I have been concentrating of late on the four paintings I am doing for the Old Bakery Art Trail.Three of the paintings of British Thrushes are complete and I have started a painting of a Mistle Thrush. I have broken off this work to do a bit more on this portrait of my father. I am painting from an old sepia tone photograph taken when he was in the army at the beginning of the war so I guess he was in his early thirties. At the moment the painting is in monochrome as I want to get it about right before I attempt to put on some colour.
