Suzie - This painting is wonderful...so full of life and gorgeous color. I love his expression and the smoothness of his skin...the beard looks like silk, and his turban is done so perfectly with all the folds and color.
This is going into my special favorites right now!!!x

Artist Statement
for suzie nichols
I recently got back into drawing and painting when I retrained as a garden designer. I have attended classes in life drawing and water based oils as well as general drawing and painting classes. I draw and paint for relaxation and mainly for myself- my house is filling up with paintings I cannot bear to part with! I am open to occassionally taking commissions.
