Knighton-Hammond enjoyed painting portraits of his family. This portrait of John, the artist’s son, has been delicately painted in pastels. John is sitting on a cushion placed on a chair and is looking intensely at his father at work. Modelling in pastel has been skilfully carried out achieving a three-dimensional effect as John appears distance from the background.
