William Eggleston’s portraits


William Eggleston Untitled (Boy in red sweater) (1971) dye transfer print 31.8 x 45.4cm

This is currently on display in an exhibition of William Eggleston’s portraits at the National Portrait Gallery, London. The dye transfer colour prints are worth seeing in the flesh if you get the chance.

By coincidence, I painted this similar scene yesterday. It came out of the complimentary colour exercises.
