Silhouette Portrait of Samantha

Vignette Style Informal Child Portraiture

Oil Colour on Linen Canvas ~ 18 x 14 inches.

Samantha is a highly spirited and alluring toddler, whose Shirley-Temple-esque vivacious essence and cute cherubic cheeks are front and foremost. In this head and shoulders silhouette portrait, where subtly refined features are contrasted against more painterly and unfinished surrounding elements, a sense of youthful spontaneity is imparted.

This genre of portrait painting is a more affordable alternative to a fully resolved composition, while still capturing the character of a subject without compromising or sacrificing the high degree of artistic acumen that Marvin brings to every canvas he creates.
