Peter the plumber – study

Peter sat for half an hour while I did a drawing, then I took further inspiration from photos taken when he was 16 and 72.

This is an 5 and a half inch by 8 inch study in preparation for a larger painting.

About Graham Longworth

As a young boy I was inspired by a painting of Winston Churchill my grandfather Jim Longworth had on the wall of his house in Greenmount. The painting was signed J. J. Longworth but I never got to talk to him about his oil painting.

My first attempt at portraiture was of Churchill and I still keep it on the wall of my study for inspiration.

A painting has the power to inspire a viewer in ways that might not be imagined when it is first created or hung on the wall.
