JUDI RICH

My passion is portraiture. At times I diversify by trying other aspects of art but quickly find myself drawn back to the fascination of the human face.

 

My partner and I love to travel and he often finds I have wandered off and am occupied asking someone if I can take their photograph. I seek a face or faces I believe represent their country and I attempt to capture the essence of the individual. These images I am gradually transferring onto canvas.

 

The mediums I favour are pastel, acrylic, oil and mixed media using palette knives, brushes and anything I feel will give me the effect I seek. Currently I seem to be concentrating on acrylics. 

 

Sometimes I look at the colour in the face and seek to emphasise, at other times I limit my palette. Currently I am drawn to the use of monochrome which gives me the dramatic effect I am seeking? On occasion I will incorporate texture in order to perfect the result I wish to achieve.

 

Having escaped from the "proper job" this is my time to indulge myself.
