Fizzer caricature portrait

By Derek Gray

Fizzer caricature portrait

This is actually the first ‘head and shoulders only’ caricature I have drawn for a private commission and I loved doing it. It gives more of a portrait feel than when, as is usually the case,  many details of the subject’s life are added to the picture.
“Just a short message to thank you for the caricature you painted of my mum. I picked it up today and it is beautiful! It is just wonderful how you have managed to capture her personality from only a few photos, portraying her large earlobes and slight overbite affectionately, which I’m delighted about as they are distinctive features of her face. I don’t think good art needs background signifiers giving clues as to who the person is and I’m very glad I asked for a ‘European’ style caricature - not only does it highlight the ‘energy’ of her face but also the time and care you’ve taken with the portrait.”
