Vic Harris is a retired psychiatrist, based in East Cheshire, UK. He paints mainly portraits in oil, and since starting in 2010 he has exhibited in London and elsewhere in 11 national art competitions.

His aim in painting a portrait is to capture something in the sitter's face that may be fleeting but revelatory.

Most of the paintings here are created with an accompanying time-lapse film that can be viewed on his You Tube channel
