Painting Major James Lyon

fullsizeoutput_161

Caroline started painting her husband Major James Lyon, a GP in the Army before his second tour of Afghanistan in 2013. While on tour and after she got an idea of what the place would have been like where James was working. He sent through a photograph and she decided to later add it in to the background of the portrait.  Once James returned; looking quite different post tour she decided to do a few more sittings with James to complete the painting.
