Portraits shown here offer a range of different styles, from the more traditional to the hands of legendary rock musicians to reinterprete the genre of portraiture in a radical new way. Musicians obviously hold a special and sensitive relationship with their hands, and in the portrait of Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull in particular, suggest the very unique connection between eye, ear and hand.
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 and luminosity together with exceptional permanency.
