Office Worker accepted into the RUA 2016

Office Worker on display at the Royal Ulster Academy, Ulster Museum, Belfast 2016

This is a new painting Im working on entitled “Office Worker”. My good friend and kitesurfer Jason McGrugan kindly posed for this painting after I asked him if he would be willing to work with me regarding an idea I had for a painting. He seemed perfect for it. This image shows less than a third of the whole canvas which is originally sized at 75cm x 120cm.

A close up of the ear in my painting,”Office worker”. Still refining details after the initial block in so a long way to go especially this only being a small cross section of the painting. Again using the traditional zorn palette consisting of only 4 colours to get to this point of completion.
