Great portraits can be looked at again and again, and yield something new on each viewing. They represent a moment of truth. The way the personality is captured tells us something about the sitter, the artist, ourselves and humanity all at once.
Kevin Line is a realist, whose grisaille paintings are truthful, often introspective but very human.
He has been exhibited extensively at the Mall galleries, primarily but not solely, by the Royal Society of Portrait Painters and the Pastel society. He is also a frequent exhibitor in exhibitions at the Royal West of England Academy, and the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists [ where he is an elected member ], as well as many others, and has been awarded several major prizes. His work can be found in private and museum collections.
Kevin is happy to accept commissions.
