I worked entirely from a mirror and found it a very difficult portrait. It's hard to see myself objectively I realised, both physically and metaphorically.

Looks like a Charlton Heston pose, Pete!
Excellent work. Love the skin tones, the freedom in brush strokes and the level of detail, though I can’t recall you ever looking so serious!
Great artwork on your site, which I’ve discovered today completely by accident. So pleased that you’ve turned that ‘teen talent of 1974-5’ into a rewarding and fulfilling career.
We certainly had more ‘untamed’ hair back in the day at St. Johns Episkopi but pleased to say that we both appear to look only ‘slightly extinguished’ – though my silvery locks remain unkempt as I continue to retire disgracefully!
Regards and best wishes to you and your family.
