Portrait commission

by martin davis artist

I have to admit to feeling kind of nervous as I prepare for my next artwork. Next week I have arranged to start a significant portrait of an ex fire service colleague of mine. She is now the Chief Fire Officer of South Yorkshire Fire Service Alex Johnson and she has agreed to sit for me; a real sitter and a very important personage to boot. Must admit too though that I’m really looking forward to the challenge. She is one of the inspirational female leaders, a role model to many and a successful woman in what was traditionally a man’s world. Hence the challenge, to get the balance and composition just right to reflect the person in the uniform and the authority she carries.
