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.

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.

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.
