This selection of portraits were created posthumously or otherwise using available photographs. Very often, multiple images are combined from a variety of sources to create the final product. Posthumous portraits pose a unique challenge for the artist because they don’t have the benefit of actually meeting the subject. Years of experience have enabled Robert to capture their personalities with the aid of decent photos, much research and interviews with the people who knew them best.
Some of these portraits have amazing stories. One such portrait is of Augustus Woodward. Here you can read and watch a cool video about the process and the amazing story behind the portrait of this iconic historical figure.
