Grandad Transformed! 10" x 12", oil on linen canvas, 2009

commission oil on linen portraits

Some of you might remember the post I shared about having a commission to paint someones Grandad from a small 6x4 black and white photograph, it was the only photograph they had left.

I took up this challenge and now after a few adjustments here and there it has been verified!

To do this it was tricky all the way, because it was hard to depict warm and cold colours, I just had to stick to tones, which doesn't really help for skin. But it was a bit like Karin Juricks exercise for last DSFDF weeks challenge. Only that I took a picture of his son(client) and used his tones for the painting.
