The Red Barons
About the artwork and sitter
The ‘Red Barons’ are a group of eight successful professionals and ‘wine coinoisseurs’ who are linked together through the Brisbane Club.
They have been meeting socially at the Brisbane Club for the last twelve years. This portrait attempts to capture the ‘Red Barons’ and their spirit of friendship and affinity.
It aims to depict the the power, prestige, and confidence of these high-achievers, as well as the camaraderie, trust, and sense of belonging.
‘I have tried to reflect all of these elements in the artwork by using colour, light, mood, and props in a deliberate manner.’
