Here’s a recent portrait I painted for a collector of their three lovely children. I love how it came out, and more importantly, I’ve heard that they love it. Thank you David and Emily for being Collectors!
portrait of children
Duet, 10×8 in oil painting portrait (NFS). Minnesota and South Dakota portrait paintings.
Detail above. Full painting below.
This is my son and his lovely piano teacher practicing for their duet in this Saturday’s concert. It’s When the Saints Come Marching In. He’s doing really well with his timing and dynamics (and of course she’s amazing). More about portraits: http://jessiesfineart.com/commission-a-portrait.html
Portrait artist paints Portrait of children sitting outside, oil painting
Untitled / 6×6 inches / oil on panel. This is a traditional portrait in that I wanted to capture these two beautiful kids and their comfortable connection at that moment. I’m really excited about how this painting turned out.
What should I name this painting? Right now it is “David’s Children” but there seems to be a narrative in this painting. Naming paintings is so hard!
The technical things I was working on were colors, values, brush strokes and edges, and getting the background into the right compromise between supportive and interesting.
