commissioned for the Ringwood Steiner school .Painting Rudolph Steiner has been a very rewarding experience . my main aim was to capture the powerful , enigmatic qualities of the man who contributed so much to humanity with his great spiritual outlook. I used a selection of more muted colours to emphasize the period of when Steiner was alive in the late 19th & early 20th century. my time studying portraiture is now allowing me to reach a stage in my artistic development to begin to capture the inner qualities of the portrait subject. for more details on the various stages of work , please refer to the work in progress section Rudolph Steiner portrait.
