A portrait is a unique gift, to record a moment in time, a birthday, wedding or anniversary. King’s portraits seek to capture the essential persona or unique character of the sitter, in conjunction with creating an obvious likeness. Alternatively a drawing offers a quintessential black and white profile of the sitter. A vignette or partially completed oil study, can offer a vibrant expression particularly suitable for portraits of young children. Other options include family/or group portraits, head/and shoulders, 3/4 or full-length, single/or double portraits.
Equally other commissions may offer a view of a house, interior or still life consisting of special treasured objects.
The commissioning process includes an initial meeting to discuss composition, medium/style. Ideally a few sittings follow together with reference photographs. If sittings prove difficult then a portrait may be completed with the use of reference photographs.
