Nelson Mandela

This is my second attempt at a portrait painting. As you can see, I have greatly improved on my technique since the one of my Dad.

I did this in late 2013 for a South African friend. It takes at least 6 months for the oil to dry, then you have to put a glaze on it to protect it from dust and that needs to dry too. Then I was finally able to send it. She received it late this year and I couldn’t put it here until she’d got it.

I’m very proud of this one.
