Priscilla

Priscilla Ambrosini sat for this portrait at a moments notice, which was fortunate for me because another sitter had to cancel our appointment. Priscilla is an artist too. She was a student at RMIT and my partner, Deborah Klein, was one of her lecturers, so it's been great to have a friendship after all these years.

I've always thought a great portrait is such a magical thing to see and recently I came across a wonderful book on portrait drawings, a catalogue from The National Portrait Gallery in London titled THE ENCOUNTER, DRAWINGS FROM LEONARDO TO REMBRANDT. I thought I would probably never come across another art book I would love to have, but surprises can happen!
