#3 of three


Thomas, the elder brother of Jake and Hannah. I finished this portrait this afternoon and it completes the set of three.
This picture is very outdoorsy, the rain has washed the face and the oncoming of night shows the warm fleshtones against the cool evening air. Flash photography isn’t usually a friend to portrait painting but we get away with it here. I had to exclude some glare on the glasses, though, and make up what was behind it. I also took the liberty of drying Thomas’ hair at the fringe!

  1. Terrific sib portraits David. The texture of your brushstrokes adds wonderful vitality to the portraits.

  2. As Elena says: you’ve captured the vitality…… like the fringe!
