A nostalgic postwar image
This is a scan of an original 1950’s photo
The finished painting in shades of grey measured 32 x 42 cm. Apparently it became a real talking point.
This was the first painting Kerry had ever attempted and she did a fabulous job. Taking her time, filling in a little now and again she created this lovely painting over a period of several months. Click on the image below to see how carefully she painted the details and the thick texture of the oil paints.
By now Kerry had got the painting bug
Her next project was a series of family portraits of each of her four children. She patiently completed the faces but left the backgrounds blank. She explained that she wanted to wait and then complete them all with a colour that would complement her interior decor.
Notice how Kerry has blended the edges of skin tone paints together.
My mum painted this!
Her youngest son is delighted with his portrait. We’d like to thank Kerry for supplying these lovely photos of her art.
I can’t think of a single negative comment to give you……
It’s a perfect likeness of my very handsome kitty cat and I enjoyed creating him so much. I found myself painting ‘just that section one more’ because I wanted him to have a nose to go with his lifelike little eye…
A delightful pet portrait by a complete beginner.
Martin wanted a souvenir of his lovely old golden retriever
So he sent us this sweet photo of Jack sound asleep in his bed. Notice that it is really well focussed – you can see the texture of the fur really clearly. This is important for a good painting.
Beginning the painting
So we supplied everything he needed to paint Jack’s picture. Martin had never painted anything (apart from walls) before, and he explained that found the template a little daunting at first. However, he kept going…
Once he’d got the swing of it, he says he found it hard to put down his brush! Martin spent quite a few happy hours creating Jack in art-form.
Martin is delighted with his painting and he’s already started on his next one – a spitfire!

The photo cropped down
We cropped the image down a little and adjusted the contrast to design the artwork.
