All of Knighton-Hammond’s portraits have individuality conveying human presence as well as artistic process. With this portrait in profile there is a suggestion of emotional transitions and movement in what is normally the static genre of portrait painting. The artist has used thick, impasto paint to convey the volume of the head and give texture to the flesh and clothing. The plain background cleverly projects the sitter into the space of the spectator.
