Portrait of Jamie

Young Teenage Boy

Oil Colour on Linen Canvas ~ 18 x 14 inches.

Jamie, a beloved only child, is depicted by Marvin Mattelson in this head and shoulders portrait, with the inclusion of one hand in Marvin's classical portrait painting style.

The warm skin tones and shirt color are the painting's focal point by virtue of being contrasted against the blue sweatshirt and blue-gray background. From the simplest to the most complicated of portraits, Marvin considers every detail and weighs every option to create an aesthetically pleasing and beautiful work of art, all in the service of conveying a perfect sense and likeness of every subject he paints.
