Portrait in Brighton
Some may wish for a portrait in Brighton of themselves or someone dear to them. Many would not know how to choose well when searching out a portrait painter. The qualities that make a portrait painter stand out have been described in flowery and complex terms. At Rob Hefferan studios we do not even try to describe the magic that takes place when Rob Hefferan, portrait artist, translates the essence of the subject to canvas. The realism is so overpowering maybe a good way to describe the difference is this; other artists paint striking likenesses onto canvas; Rob Hefferan captures the soul and personality that emanates from within. He presents a visual for what is otherwise only emotionally felt.
Rob Hefferan recognised his gift early in life and let nothing, like school, deter him from his passion. There may be in Brighton, future portrait artists like Hefferan who feel no kinship in traditional schools. His impatience with academics as a young boy was relieved when in his late teens he enrolled at Padgate Art School. He joined others like himself and received the emotional support and educational environment he craved for so long. Here, he learned to transfer his visual impressions to canvas. His great gift of touching the spot of an individual spirit and shining a light on it explains why this is the artist you want for your portrait. This is the artist you want to capture the uncertainty and joy of a bride on her wedding day.
