Street Portrait (for and of Jenna), 2018

– Street Portrait (for and of Jenna), 2016 –

It’s been a while since I last took a street portrait. The project, which has been going since 2012, seemed to have ground to a halt…and then I spotted Jenna. And she was great about me taking a few shots. This is the first of four shots and is my favourite. Thanks very much Jenna!

If you are interested in seeing more of my work, I have a new website: https://richardguest.art/ , which includes a print of the month (this month it’s the turn of Into The Light from 2014, which was taken on Hungerford Bridge, London, UK).

Works in progress, street portraits and sneak peeks of finished paintings are all featured on my Instagram feed. I update the feed three times a week, and you can find it here.

Landscape in Three Parts, 2018– Landscape In Three Parts (Sketch), 2018 –

This was one possible solution to how do I paint a “landscape” using square canvases (80 x 80 cm)…it’s still on the back burner while I work through some other stuff…

Street Portrait (for and of Oli), 2014– Street Portrait (for and of Oli), 2014 –

Oli was enjoying a break outside a pub on Lamb Conduit Street, when I asked him if I could take his portrait. He was great about it (as was another customer – sorry didn’t get your name – who acted as impromptu stylist. I took six shots; this is the first and my favourite. Oli is a photographer (great portraits!) and web designer. You can see his photographs here and his web designs here. Thanks very much for letting me take your portrait, Oli! Hope you like your picture.

Portrait of a stranger, 2014

Street Portrait (for and of Giovanni), 2014– Street Portrait (for and of Giovanni), 2014 –

Yesterday, I decided to concentrate on architecture and reflections. Concentrating so hard I took no actual shots.  I was just on the point of giving up on the day entirely when I spotted Giovanni taking a break from the heat in the shade of a shop. He seemed to exude summer and was really nice about having his photograph taken. Thanks very much, Giovanni! Hope you like your picture.
