Carlos & Kristel
16" x 20"
This commission was for a dear friend in Chile who wanted to surprise her fiance for his birthday.
I wanted to portray their joy of being together. When I am painting I loose myself in chasing light and shadows, and shapes and curves by layering colour upon colour. I strive to capture something of the person onto the canvas. It is an impossible task but I have to try.
Original in private collection.
Painted: July 2021
- Acrylic on Birch Wood Panel Canvas
It started out as a pencil portrait, but once done, I just knew I had to paint it.
