Painted Portraits

Well, I tried my hand at painting a couple of portraits not too long ago. Both of them are done in black & white oil on 16x20x1.5 inch canvases.

I started with a simple snapshot…

…and here is the finished painting.

I wanted the main focus to be on their faces, and I really like that the finished pieces are much larger than life. I remember the first time I saw them in person after painting these and thinking how incredibly tiny their heads seemed in comparison!

Here is the second photo…

…and here is the finished painting.

A few close-ups...

I really enjoyed creating these and will be offering custom portraits in my shop on Etsy in the near future. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in having a portrait painted!
