Oil on Canvas
30 by 20 inches
I was contacted by a client that was looking for a period style portrait of himself featured as a Spanish conquistador.
So I suggested that I painted in a technique that resembled the old masters, like Rembrandt
So the style I suggested was one with heavy light and shadow contrasts typical of Vermeer painting , and I worked with a friend who is involved with battle re-enactment, hence own many authentic looking noble costumes.
I also worked with a professional photographer in his studio to get the correct intense lighting.
So my client walked away with a disc full of portrait images
in various costumes and a beautiful oil masterpiece.
a portrait in oil please contact Debra
