Senior Portrait

Last December my friend asked what I was up to with my art and I showed her a few photos of portraits I had just finished.  Later that day she asked if I would paint her daughters portrait before she heads off to college.  I was excited to give it a shot.  I am thrilled with how it turned out.  I especially enjoyed painting the shadow on her cheek created by a small part in her hair, her green eyes, and the delicate “K” necklace she was wearing.  But hair is alway my favorite feature to paint.  I’m honored that my friend liked my work and had faith that I could capture her daughter’s look and personality.  Such a beautiful girl!

I took the painting in to a professional art print reproduction place and had it scanned. Great image!  Here it is.
