Oil Portrait Painting of Michael

Head-and-Shoulders Size Portrait Commission

Oil Colour on Linen Canvas ~ 18 x 14 inches.

Michael is a very sincere and thoughtful young man whose head and shoulders portrait, with one hand showing, gave Marvin the perfect opportunity to capture this young teen forever at a very special age. This dimensionally illusionistic portrait conveys a sense of reality in a way that a two-dimensional photo never could.

Michael's dark hair and clothing frame his face perfectly, making it the clear focal point of the portrait. The shape of the light is further contrasted by the tone of shadows and the similar background values. The strong lighting brings the focus where it needs to be, towards his softly and delicately painted features. This is an heirloom to be cherished always.
