Commissioned portrait of Edwige

Edwige Is sitting in front of Her piano. At her right there Is a window and i asked Her to look outside through it. I managed to find a good light on The right part of Her face. The contrast shadow/light, and to light up one of the two sides of the face are two great tips to know in order to make volume. 

I enjoyed to build this painting because Edwige Is very good looking, and her position as classical as stunning.

This Is an oil painting on Canvas, 92 x 73 cm. Have a look to thé entiere piece, then below some details. 

What do you think about it ? Would you enjoy to imagine you as a subject on some paintings? Would you Like to have your own portrait ?

Kind regards,

Lydie and Her daughter

Lydie and Her daughter, oil on Canvas, 38 x 46 cm.

Yesterday i was still working on this commissionned painting, and it have to be shipped and delivered to Bretagne Before Christmas!

What do you think about it? I am going to  stop working on it now, the light Is cold and the mood quite soft, showing a great scene maybe from December, with a delicious cake to share, perfect for Christmas and New year celebrations!

Laury and his fiancée

This week i am also working on a small commissioned drawing with two faces. Believe me or not but to built a miniature can be as fastidious as a larger piece.

This one is 18x13cm, pencil on paper. Depends on you, but it can be the perfect size for a Christmas present! :)
