Any day now

By Rob Pointon

Any day now

I painted two portraits of my friend Claire full-course with her first child. We were looking at the pregnancy and pattern paintings of Gustav Klimt. I set up more dramatic lighting then I would normally use abandoning my usual desire for realism and the role of a pure observer, and instead actively staging a subject. I enjoyed this studio painting more then expected and have since started several other portraits of friends, including two of Paul, the father, with their healthy new baby boy – Louie.
