Over the last two years, Richard Wathen started making watercolour portraits – sketches, as it were, for more refined portraits in oil. These meditative portraits, combining an expressive brushstroke with a typically saturated colour palette, quickly lost their status as a sketch and became a new series within Wathen’s painterly practice.

artlead invited Richard Wathen to make two series of portraits for its ‘artlead series’, and is proud to present here Avery and Arden.
