|Jackie Orszaczky, |
Watercolour on Arches paper, 76 x 56 cm
When I entered this portrait in a competition and had to get him to sign a form saying he had actually sat for me, he read the form in amongst the beer decals at the pub and said 'But I have been sitting for you all year!' (as recounted in Blue Tulips). I am not in the video below but I was probably there watching and painting. In his native Hungary he got audiences of thirty thousand people.
Jackie died in 2008 aged 59.
