Been away for a while, but I have checked in from now and then and seen some awesome work!
My latest painting is a posthumous portrait of a young man. The measure of the canvas, 51 X 48 cm.
The commissioners wanted different clothes than the actual photo with the face I had to paint.
This created issues for me, about proportion, light among many things. I overexposed one photo to get the details of his jacket for example.The actual photo did not show the hair in a good way and the photo was taken with a flashlight and I wanted him to be outdoors on a sunny day (!) From looking at videos on Youtube with the young man I believe I got it kind of right. This work has been emotionally exhausting, so please be gentle in your criticism. BUT please do criticize!
