PORTRAITS

Stephen B Whatley has been painting portraits for over 25 years capturing what might be described as an iconic essence with his distinctive and vibrant palette. His portrait of Barack Obama was published in TIME magazine and his Royal portraits have been reproduced in The London Times, HELLO magazine & Majesty magazine.

Uniquely he visits to paint a portrait from a life in a single sitting; and also undertakes portrait commissions inspired by photographs. The majority of the portraits featured in this section are painted from life; interspersed by a selection of his portrait commissions from photographs.

This is a selection of the diverse range of portraits the artist has painted. Some of the portraits are sold and some of the works are currently available for purchase. Full details are in the captions above the paintings.
