48th Painting

Facial expression in an image has the capacity to hold the viewer’s attention beyond the passing glance we often give to a portrait. I thought this child’s bewildered reverential stare was definitely worth a longer gaze and I adored painting his beautiful face and couldn’t help remembering my own children at this age. Keegan Carty, aged 2 was enjoying a special trip to the Newcastle United’s training session.
Artists have used the whole colour palette to depict the face and the flat plane of the canvas means the artist can experiment in order to suggest the arcing and the arching of the face.
