Blue PandA portrait in oils.

A double portrait in oils.
For a friend’s anniversary. The source material was a dark photograph taken from a concert. Made to go with a similar painting I’d created 10 years before as a wedding present. It was handed over to a very happy client yesterday.

The colours change a lot in differing light conditions. This is due to the glazes used.

In perspective.


And in close up.



Blue blue Electric blue.
No, it was Cobalt blue Hue, Cerulean Blue Hue and Phthalo blue.
Actually. With a little Lamp black, Titanium white, Liquin and retouching varnish.

The painting in stages:

No tracing, No squaring up, No messing.

    I really like this; the slightly ironic ‘painted selfie’ feel which comes over so strongly sets it apart from usual portraits. I’m not surprised they were delighted!

    Many thanks, very insightful.
