Dorothy Siclare

oil on canvas

I did this a few years ago and now seeing the portraits on this blog makes me want to do it again and see how (or if) I have progressed.

Me Again
Me Three

This was one of five prizewinners on BBC The One Show Summer Exhibition.
My overwhelming passion is painting portraits and people because they are so diverse and endlessly fascinating. This self portrait was inspired by numerous double and triple aspect portraits through the ages, all of which I love. The composition came straight from 'The Three Graces' sculpture by Antonio Canova.
