SAC Ryan Tomlin

Ryan was only 21 when he was killed whilst on patrol in Afghanistan. His mum has told me he was very artistic so I am really hoping I did him justice.
The whole process has been a tricky one as it was supposed to be a surprise for his mum ordered by a family member. After I started the painting I realised his mum needed to have an input into how it would look and I didn’t like the thought of her being surprised by it as it is supposed to be a deeply personal portrait for her to cherish. So I asked another mum I have become friends with, to contact her. I am so glad she did as she is a lovely lady, she is overjoyed at her painting and requested a sunset background , I will he also gifting 5 prints to his family. Ryan’s dad has picked out a spot for it on the wall already. I hope his beautiful face brings them all a little comfort when they need it X
