Back to the Bar

The subject of this Vanity Fair style portrait, Back to the Bar, was the highest bidder in a Spy caricature auction which I held as part of a charity Coffee Morning event in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. She decided to commission a portrait of herself to mark her return to the Bar after an absence.


Back to the Bar – Vanity Fair style portrait

These are gentle caricatures, nothing too extreme. As Leslie Ward (Spy) said:

If I could sum up the art in a sentence, it would be that caricature should be a comic impression with a kindly touch, and always devoid of vulgarity.Leslie Ward – Wikipedia
