latest commission complete

A very good friend of mine from art school days in Cape Town has 3 sisters, one of whom immigrated to Australia and is now living in rural Victoria, Australia. Like me she has 2 cheeky and gorgeous little girls and she wanted them depicted in a painting for her house in nice bright colours. We based her painting on a piece I created a few years ago. Jeannine loved the vibrancy of the teals, reds and pinks of my painting "Water Garden" so I used this painting as the base in which to set her 2 gorgeous young daughters. Painting faces is always challenging – to capture the essence of someones face from photographs without always knowing the person is often tricky. However, I have to say I am really thrilled with the way this painting has ended up and so is Jeannine :)
