oil on canvas
I finished this portrait for a gentleman yesterday. It is his late wife. Painting it has been a thoughtful experience! First of all, I am definitely not used to painting nearly life-size faces, smiling at that! Obviously, he brought me photos to work from and she was smiling in all of them. A lovely lady! I may ask for more reference material for her hair--he really likes it as it is, though, so maybe not! It was kind of an awesome experience to watch the painting come to life and see that it looks just like her!
