Mr Jones has been shortlisted for the prestigious Artist of the Year 2013 award, held by Artisits & Illustrators magazine.
His entry is a portrait of his best friend Geoff, who he has known for 20 years. It is painted in oils on linen, which is his preferred medium. He aimed to communicate his character and the person within, who he knows so well. A single light source was used to give a sense of tension and atmosphere.
The magazine is looking for pieces that are unique, creative and that demonstrate a good level of artistic technique. Their panel of judges will be led by Artists & Illustrators editor Steve Pill and Osborne Studio Gallery director Geoffrey Hughes. Readers will also have the chance to vote for their favourite shortlisted works on the Artists & Illustrators website. Online voting closes at noon on Friday 3 January 2014.
