"FIRST LESSON" 2009
acrylic on canvas
This is a good example of a an alternative style portrait... the subjects are in non traditional poses with a custom background. A portrait similar to this on a 12"x 16" canvas would start at $1100.
An alternative style portrait often times is more interesting than a traditional portrait, as it is entertaining to any viewer. You don't have to know these subjects to enjoy this little father son moment. This style is one of my favorites to paint.
The reference photo for this portrait was a snapshot the golfer's wife took as her husband was warming up for a Tucson tournament. Their son decided to 'help' his dad with the putt. Now this precious moment in time is forever captured on canvas.
When you're looking for potential reference photos from your photo collection, look for displays of emotion in the subjects. I've got a pretty good knack for capturing those emotions. This style is worth consideration. As well as being a portrait, it can stand alone as a figurative painting.
Let someone special in your family star in an original work of art!
