Houses

“If only Naomi had been there when my son unwrapped the painting we commissioned for his 21st birthday. His hands flew to his mouth in astonishment and he was overwhelmed that the painting so captured his end of Portugal Street. He had an extremely happy second year living there and Naomi’s painting – the atmosphere, the texture, the sensibility – caught it all. His memories will forever be with him and in Naomi’s painting, depicted in glorious colour and style” Gillian Stern, London

One of the things I am most often asked to paint is people’s houses. I think these are really special paintings, because they need to be very true to life, yet bring a bit of life into what can be quite a challenging subject. Perspective is also a key factor in getting these right.
