Mexican girl painted portrait

One of the commissions I worked on last weekend.

Oil on white cardboard, 9 x 10.

I try to bring realism to the painted portraits, but also imprint a part of how I look at people. Like in this case, they tend to commission me these portraits as gifts or mementos. And yet, if I do a photograph-like painting, it would be best if they just put the original photo.

That’s my take on doing this sort of portraits — make it look realistic and yet have the feel you’re looking at a piece of art. Don’t get me wrong, I admire hyper realist artists, it is a feat of creativity what they do. Then again, people want to have a more artsy portrait on their hands. At least that’s what I have sensed and heard from my clients.

What I love is when they give me Carte Blanche, and literally ask me to do it as I would a personal portrait for me.
