Now that we’ve established some of our key themes, we’re trying to build a portfolio of work in each area. This is the second in our Africa series, following on from The New Hunter, and once again, the centrepiece of the work is one of Dale Webster’s exquisite portraits.

The content is African, but the theme is universal. Outward serenity and inner turmoil. And there’s a question. What does the model choose to show the painter? What does the artist really see? How much can a portrait convey? Is it possible to capture the whole story, or can we only depict one or two dimensions at best?

Have you ever wondered what it would have been like living next door to the real Mona Lisa? Would she have looked the same when she was hanging the washing instead of on the wall?
