Family painting of a father, mother and son
Portrait commissioned by a Dutch couple. Initially only the father and the son were intended to be portrayed but it ended up with all three. The challenge was I didn’t have a photograph with all of them together so I ended up with making a composition of 2 different images each with different light fall. So I had to totally adjust the light fall on the mother which cost me a lot of trial and error and time. The reason I didn’t have a picture of all of them together that was usable was that it was a birthday present for the father.
The size of this painting is 90X180cm which is ideal for above the couch.
