Phyllosese II

Oil on Linen, 91 x 101cm

This second portrait of Takumi is a wider shot and a slightly more traditional, with the face in view, but still primarily focused on his hands. The colours in the background (his shirt) are very similar to those used in the glazes for Takumi’s clay coffee cups. Observing the care that goes into each of these pieces helps develop a better appreciation of the finished product.
