GT Art Portraits

Gary Thompson is a painter of fine art pastel portraits working in Cornwall. The paintings are done in the traditional way but now mainly working from photographs. My passion is twofold, creating great likenesses of course, but I also enjoy exploring the character and personality of my subject. The result is a work of art that will be treasured and cherished for a long time. I have developed a style that strikes the right balance between creating a great work of art and getting the close likeness, that in the real world, most people want. As Samuel Johnson put it, 'I had rather see the portrait of a dog that I know, than all the allegorical paintings they can show me in the world'. I also do sketches in pastel pencil and also graphite which are very popular.
