Custom Vignette Portrait Art
Portrait of Jake
Children's Oil Portraiture Paintings on Commission
Oil Colour on Linen Canvas • 18 x 14 inches.
Marvin's intent in depicting Jake in this vignette style fine art head and shoulders portrait was to convey to the viewer Jake's mellow spirit and introspective sense of self.
Marvin chose to surround the nuanced flesh tones with soft blues to imbue this portrait commission with an aura of self-reflection. The colors, the composition and especially the quality of the lighting effects are all chosen to evoke a particular mood and say something about the sitter's personality and energy.
