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.
