The Painter-mechanick

Living and learning in the past for you

Sir Watkyn has commissioned a painter-mechanick to paint both his, and Lady Dorothea's portraits. Master Daniel Lowe has spent time in the studio of Sir Anthony van Dyck, from whom he has learned many of the techniques he is applying to the portraits. He has also studied the works of many of the continental artists and talks entertainingly about his knowledge.

In his work, mainly for the gentry, he often overhears conversations or receives confidences, which he occasionally drops into conversations to impress other sitters.
