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.
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.
