Daniel Fooks studied at Edinburgh College of Art and is Head of Art at Godalming College. His work has been seen in a solo exhibition in Cranleigh.

The portrait is of actor Peter Capaldi who Fooks contacted after watching his documentary programme on the history of Scottish portraiture. Capaldi agreed to a sitting at which Fooks made
notes, sketches and a series of photographs that he used to make the paintings during the summer of 2010.
