This is part of a family portrait I recently finished. I’ve just shown one person from the painting and only a partial shot of him to keep the family’s privacy. This was done in acrylic and as you can see I took some artistic licence with the background colour and had fun showing some brush strokes and vibrant colour. After all, it is a painting not a photo! Quite the trick catching their essence but keeping artistic flare alive. Also tricky when working from multiple photos! It’s a personal success each time you set out to paint a person and you feel like I’ve nailed it … or at least nailed in in your own style.
