Artist’s Statement
This particular painting was part of a series looking at adding very definite facial responses to the paintings, in terms of a gasp or a look of surprise. Very often I am looking for something more subtle than this, a moment after someone has spoken or the moment before somebody responds to a question.

In addition to this change of direction I also looked to quieten the palette and isolate strong colour rather than use it universally as I often do.

A man surprised by Paul Wright

Virtual Images - Where artworks are shown framed or within a room setting the images have been created using virtual/augmented reality software in some instances. The images are provided to give an idea of the scale of the artwork in the context of a room and the style of the framing. They should not be viewed as completely accurate e.g. the scale and the style/colours of the frame may vary slightly. 

An online gallery with an augmented reality option is very forward looking and very appealing to the buyer.

The picture arrived this afternoon, very well packed and in excellent condition. It is indeed a very fine picture.

The painting is received and is a really nice small study-like work...

Thank you very much for all your help.
