Bob Braithwaite

Bob Braithwaite M.B.E.  (1925 – 2015)
Olympic Gold Medallist, Trap Shooting, Mexico City 1968
Commission (oil on canvas 20x16in)

I was fortunate to meet Bob several years ago and, even on that first encounter, I wanted to paint his portrait. He was a man who was one of those people who leaves an indelible memory.
The story of his Olympic success is well documented. A Veterinary Surgeon, and amateur shooter, who competed in the Mexico Olympics and beat the world’s best.
Charismatic, unassuming and, above all, a true gentleman.
