Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar

This is a caricature of the famous Indian and Yorkshire cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.

I painted this for a friend of mine who was over in the UK for 6 weeks from India and I knew he enjoyed cricket and Tendulkar was a hero of his.

I gave him this picture on his last day in the UK - hopefully of a nice reminder of his visit here.

This is an acrylic picture measuring 12" x 8" on canvas board, and is #45 of 52.

Mme Monboddo


Madamme Monboddo

This is a true-to-life painting of Jean-Patrique Monboddo's wife - Magdalena. 

Not a lot is really known about Magdalena. She began her Parisian life as the artist's muse - but  their working relationship very soon developed into a love affair.

They finally married and lived their last years together in the shadow of 
the Sacre Coeur in Montmartre, Paris.

This is an acrylic picture measuring 14" x 12" on canvas board, and is #42 of 52.
Nearly one a week for a year
