A commission for a close friend, one that I know since primary school. A portrait of both her (late) parents, based on a photograph. It was the first time I made an oilpainting based on a picture. Difficult because compared to live painting the 3rd dimension is missing. Luckily the picture was very good, it had lively shadows.
But I was very unsure if I caught the essence of both their faces.
I should not have worried. Carina's reaction when she saw the painting this evening told me that I caught the resemblance very well.
