Sleep: Series 3 - £6000
This is the third painting in the series examining sleep - and in particular the unique way in which the human body holds itself in this most intimate of moments. I love the way we get an aerial window on the unconscious - playing the full figure into focus - set against the neutral backdrop of sheets and bed linen.
This will most likely be a series of about ten paintings - each focussing on an individual body signature as a celebration of the female form. Rosa, in this picture, will feature in two or three paintings and Series 4 is already underway in the studio. You can follow my Instagram for step-by-step videos and updates of this new painting as it develops.
Series 3 will be my entry for the ROI Royal Institute of Oil Painters Exhibition in London later this year. Following my success with Jenn in 2016 - I've been greatly encouraged to put in more work this time around.
