Tempera

[cp_dropcaps]E[/cp_dropcaps]mily Patrick is known as a figurative painter, which I've discovered since looking it up means she paints using real object sources, therefore her paintings are representational rather than abstract. I going to start referring to myself as a figurative photographer, I do enjoy a good alliteration.

I had the pleasure of photographing Emily last month at her house and studio in Greenwich for Artist and Illustrators magazine. The bay window in the portrait above worked beautifully as a backdrop. The late afternoon sun was streaming in through the glass and dropping in a few gelled light sources from the front helped to carefully create a natural looking scene. A bright and warm portrait which complimented Emily's sunny disposition.
