Portraits shown here offer a range of different styles from traditional portraits to the hands of musicians to interprete the genre of portraiture in a new way. Musicians hold a special and sensitive relationship with their hands and in the portrait of Ian Anderson MBE/Jethro Tull below suggest the very unique connection between eye, ear and hands.
All Victoria’s paintings incorporate the use of coloured grounds with monochromatic under-painting to include grisaille or verdaccio for very different effects. The use of high quality oil pigments on linen together with final glazing offers a brilliance of colour, luminosity with exceptional permanency.
