“In Memory Of” Family Memorial Portrait Painting captured a very handsome man of 27 who passed to early in life. His Father commissioned me to create this pastel painting. We had many critiques and his Father knew his sons face very well. We went over every detail with his precise instructions.
His Father restricted the colors to black, grey and white only. I worked from baby pictures, a few high school pictures and a high school 1″X1″ picture wearing a white T-shirt were the images I worked from. When this “In Memory of” Family Memorial Portrait painting was finished his father was very happy with the results and so was I.
His family needed to see their beautiful son every day. I used all my intuition to make this work of art a beautiful memory for everyone who know this young man would carry his spirit with them.
