Learned Counsel

Vanity Fair style portrait. This barrister was leaving her chambers to become a lecturer. Her chambers commissioned a ‘SPY’ style portrait to commemorate her time as a barrister, and to say farewell.

In the style of Victorian/Edwardian caricaturist Leslie ‘SPY’ Ward.

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
