Their starting point was looking at photographs of themselves in various locations and selecting elements they thought would be interesting to paint.
The plan that they have come up with is to make two self portraits with each artist painting the background location for the other. They will then swap canvases and paint the portraits.
‘Doreen and I have quite different approaches to painting so it’ll be interesting to see how the project develops and how our styles combine.’
We will post regular updates on the project, keep an eye on the blog!
