Ian Stanton’s portrait is back on the easle. Intensly working out the lights and shade against colour and texture of his skin and hair. A background of yellow muskness to bring him in and out doors as Ian juggles between the office and parklands of croftcastle. I asked all the sitters ‘if they could speak to one of the croft ancestors now-what would they ask them.’ I’ll be letting you know each one of Custodians answers soon. In the mean time what would you ask of one of your ancestors. ???
