Figure Study No. 9 by John Wheeler. Edition taken from an original acrylic on hardboard painting. This very simple composition in a limited palette of muted colour has been worked and developed over a number of painstaking stages to produce this delightful characterful portrait study in primitive style
Originally a photo-real painter, John now devotes his creative energy into a more emotive, expressive form of mark-making which resonates with the character and individuality of his subjects. His work is an eclectic amalgam of early Hockney blended with essence of Modigliani and Breughel!
