    “Childhood Memories” Family Portrait Painting

    “Childhood “Memories” Family Portrait Painting was a commissioned painting. The boy in the yellow shirt studio at a 35 year old man wanted a commission painting in color of a 30 year old, torn, water damaged, sepia tone photograph.

    In the original photograph the boy in the yellow shirt his legs were outstretched far out to the right that presented a very asymmetrical pose. He wanted to adjust his legs and feet to a natural childlike position that would add symmetry to the painting.

    Since the portrait painting was so faded I asked my client to send family pictures and instead of using pastel sepia tones a muted color scheme was developed to bring my client’s childhood memory to life.

    This pastel painting “Childhood Memories” Family Portrait Painting portrays the carefree days of brothers playing within the beautiful landscape of the Grand Cayman Islands.

These were all the images to create from.

    “The Family Portrait”

    “The Family Portrait” pastel painting is one of the most beautiful portraits to have.  Capturing a time that you can look back at and smile about is what life is all about.

    Their little boy was very active running and playing all the time.  It was adorable and hard to sketch or keep him still with his parents.  Obviously we worked that out by giving him that baseball glove that he loved, Dad was able to hold him for “The Family Portrait”.

    I had to do a separate session with the parents to finish the details such as the jewelry and clothing since the most important detail was to have their son looking as cute as is truly was.  This family wanted a casual portrait with their son and Dad wearing jeans.

    “Two Beautiful Ballerinas” Family Portrait Painting

    Two Beautiful Ballerinas” Family Pastel Portrait Painting is a stunning work of art that captures the poses of two young sisters who love to dance and play. The artist met with the girls several times to get to know their personalities and preferences, which made the painting a true representation of who they are. The artist made sure to measure the girls’ heights and proportions carefully to create a realistic portrayal of their poses, which were drawn and sketched beforehand after taking their measurements. The older sister’s favorite pink chiffon hair piece was also incorporated into creating the painting and was the idea for creating the costumes for the painting, as the mother loved the colors pink and lavender.

    The portrait was created as per the mother’s request to hang over the stone fireplace in her formal living room, and it became the focal point of the entire room. The painting is an impressive 40″X60″ and was created with a vertical composition to complement the high ceilings of the room, which were approximately 13 feet high. The mother’s desire for a pastel portrait painting of her beautiful daughters was achieved with this remarkable piece of artwork.

    Working with the two sisters was a lot of fun for the L.A. CLINE, and their energy and love for dance made the process enjoyable. The attention to detail in the portrait makes it a true representation of the girls and their love for ballet, which is evident in the way they strike their poses. The end result is a stunning piece of artwork that perfectly captures the essence of these two beautiful ballerinas.
