Portrait of the week: Oti Mabuse

Portrait of dancer Oti Mabuse. I can’t believe this is the final one of the season from Sky Arts Artist of the year. It’s been a short season and I will miss the programme and painting along with the art community 🌹

Happy international women’s day.
I painted this Portrait of actor and activist Jill Nalder yesterday along with Portrait artist of the week series. Jill’s real life inspired Russell Davies hit TV drama series “It’s a sin” about HIV and AIDS in the 80s.

Today’s portrait painting is of Clive Myrie.
I’m calling it a night. I’ve been drawing and painting all Sunday and I finally feel productive for the first time this year.
Thank you to Artist of the year for this wonderful programme for the art community to come together to paint every Sunday. It’s really a joy amidst this depressing lockdown.

Portrait commission for my December charity drive #3

Portrait commission for December

And it’s a wrap for 2020. 🎉
My third and final completed portrait commission, should be arriving in the UK anytime now.
Thank you to my friend Amanda for supporting my December charity drive ♥
For December, I’m donating 50% of all portrait commissions to my charity of choice, which is the House of Hope in Penang.
It is a community centre that helps the hardcore poor by giving them somewhere to go for food, for help and their children are cared for and sent to school. More importantly it’s a safe space to make sure people within the community are looked after.
The lady who runs this place has been doing this for a long time and I know that every penny donated is given back into running this centre.

This charity connects me to my own dad who passed away 8 years ago. He did a lot of work for people in this constituency and he taught me to always give back.

Portrait artist of the week: Danni Minogue

Portrait of Danni Minogue

Final portrait artist of the week this season. I’m kind of sad as this series has connected me to many other artist around the world. It’s made painting at home less lonely during lockdown. This whole year has been pushing boundaries for me. I never thought I’d ever be taking portrait commissions but following this series has given me the confidence to attempt some commission work.

Portrait commission for my December charity drive #2

Portrait commission

My second completed portrait commission of my art patron.
She’s been asking me to paint her ever since I started painting second season of portrait artist of the week but I kept refusing, until finally last week I said yes. Thank you for pushing me out of my comfort zone and supporting my December charity drive ♥

Portrait of Lesley Garrett

Sunday is my favourite day because it’s portrait artist of the week on Sky arts live.
Today’s celebrity sitter is opera singer Lesley Garrett. I wonder what she’s thinking…
This is my completed portrait.
