"Samantha", oil on canvas board 11x14
This was a commission that had to be ready for Christmas, and I did it on time...just!
The reference photo, was from a school portrait.
My style of painting is loose, but a portrait demands precision, and I had to be very patient with myself, and not allow my eyes to confuse me!
My dear wife was of great help, pointing out errors, some of which took me a few days to accept, but it worked and at the end I'm happy with the result, and the commissioner is too!
