Portrait of Sophie Willgress
Sophie’s pose here was so natural for her, and showed her flawless beauty to such advantage, that the artist chose this in preference to a planned full-length portrait. The contrast between wisps of hair blowing in the breeze and the solid oak of the old studded plank door at Marley Hall emphasises the delicacy of youth . Commissioned for Sophie’s 21st birthday.
Completed 2008. Private collection
