I have been asked to create a likeness of Portrait of a Girl by Vilhelm Hammershoi . The Angle of the portrait plus the limited palette that hammershoi used as well as working from a Master oil painting rather than a reference photo posed many challenges. The face in particular was very difficult & the client was for a while unhappy with the facial area . It took me some time to other come the lack of progress & really had to keep my nerve & trust my artistic instinct to then achieve the likeness .
