Boy Painting

Portrait Information

This is a portrait of a young boy I completed in 2018. It was commissioned as a birthday present. The painting is 30 x 40 cm in size and painted with acrylics on canvas. I had just one photograph to work from which was excellent. I wanted to create a warm painting, so I worked with a lot of deep purples and oranges. The client was very happy with the result. I hope you all like it too. You can find more information on the commission on my blog here
