Portrait painting 90 x 60cm. Painting Jenny has been a challenging & deeply rewarding experience. I now feel my artistic skills as a portrait artist are beginning to shine through, under the guidance & mentoring of Christina at studio 2.Mastering Portraiture is my goal & I’m now at a important stage of my development as an artist. Colour harmony & applying cool/warm colours particularly in Portraying skin tone is allowing more refinement , depth & contrast to achieve a convincing illusion of space in Portraiture painting. Adding the Totem Deer in the background was a gamble that has paid off. The Deer adds a spiritual dimension to the portrait representing an aspect the subject. A final Burnt sienna glaze in walnut oil really brings the Portrait to life.
