The Browns are a happy, tight knit family. The son and daughter are competitive but close. The proud parents stand behind them, hoping you'll notice the family resemblance. Do they remind you of someone you know? I've managed to catch them all smiling at once and without a hint of red-eye!
On this piece I have backlit the subject and used dramatic shadows to add more form and interest. I've intentionally cropped the picture tightly, giving the impression they've all perhaps squeezed into a tiny photo booth.
HISTORY & BACKGROUND
"Born in Glasgow in 1958, my childhood was surrounded by the new confidence and optimism of 60s Britain. Carnaby Street, the Beatles and jobs for everyone! I was constantly exposed to new ideas, sounds and fashions. Everyone was encouraged to let their imagination run free. From a young age I immersed myself in art.Many years working on commercial material did not erode my passion for fine art.
In every day situations I tend to take mental snapshots of inanimate and animate subjects. It might be a knowing glance between two people or a reaction to a surprise. I have frequent brainstorming sessions, often with a glass of red wine in my hand – it is amazing how many of these snapshots then resurface for use in my sketches! My work combines the real and the imaginary and this is reflected in the finished pieces. My early inspirations are wide and varied, from seeing the Yellow Submarine animation as a child, to reading about Leonardo Da Vinci at school."
