John, the artist's son

Location: Misterton, Somerset, UK

Subject: Portrait

Medium: Watercolour

Date: 1940s

Signature: Knighton-Hammond

Dimensions: 39 cm x 28 cm

A portrait of the artist's son, John. Executed in watercolour and painted in a very free manner. The light is coming from the spectator's left which aids the modelling of the head. This would have been a very quick portrait and there are signs of pencil drawing in the outline of the face. John is smartly dressed in jacket and tie. We know Knighton-Hammond enjoyed painting portraits of his family.
