Family Portrait


This is a portrait I did of my grandmother. This was done from a couple of photographs when she was young. My actual recollection of her is as an old bed bound lady. I chose monochrome because it suited the period.  I can't actually remember where the painting is or where it went!

I have quite a mixed ancestry. She was from one of the oldest families in Oxfordshire. ( I say oldest not poshest they were farm workers and I can trace her line back directly to 1520).
