Self Portrait with soldier

Created by, Matthew Watts

My paintings are primarily portraits and figurative pictures. I often work in a series, repeating the same or similar images until I hit the note that I want. Some pieces are heavily worked but some are finished quickly and are quite terse. I don't aim for a polished finish or a demonstration of skill, it's much more about settling on an element of disquiet or capturing a sentiment that might ordinarily be hidden. My work is ultimately descriptive, and becomes a mix of painting and drawing.
