My First Ever Commissioned Portrait

I was totally scared and excited to take on this portrait.  I have never done a portrait before, well, I never done one like this, actually trying to make it look like the person.  I was given this photo to go off of…

Here is the progress as I was painting.

I’m pleased on how it came out and I learned a lot along the way.  I used canvas panel for this, which I won’t do again.  It is just to rough of a surface for a portrait.  This has started an obsession with paint portraits.  I’m on my second as we speak.

Here is the final piece, it will be shipping out to its new home with in the next 2 weeks.
