This portrait of Michael was painted both from life & using a photo . Being able to paint from life with Michael posing for me allowed me to capture elements that would have been difficult just from a photograph.
The colours that i could see with my own eyes when observing Michael really helped to bring this portrait to life.
Michael being a Devotee Of Ganesha wanted Ganesha in the Painting . I carefully placed Ganesha using sacred geometry principles for placement.
