Head of a Capri Girl

An oil painting study of John Singer Sargent's "Head of a Capri Girl" on board. John Singer Sargent is one of my favourite artists. I regularly make observational studies of his portraits, usually quick charcoal pencil drawings in my Moleskine sketchbooks. 

Sometimes though, I will take time to make a more considered study in oils.

Also available as a print, either on canvas or paper. Telephone 01661 871 800 for details.
