Portrait commission for retirement gift


Fantastic Robert - can imagine it was very tough doing it from a polaroid!

Well done it's a great portrait.


Those who paint know...the hardest part sometimes is to do the exact reproduction of teeth and the upper lips partially covered w mustaches...if you screw that the whole portrait is wasted. Tnx to all of you for the nice comments..

Great portrait Robert especially with an “iffy” photo. Not easy. You’ve done really well.

Very solid piece of work Robert

Great, a job well done !

Great piece of observation Robert. Love the photo-realism of it. My kind of thing.

Hang on Studio Wall

They gave me this mediocre polaroid and said do it. So what are you gonna do? Decline it or take up the challenge and try to do your best. Considering the bad photo I was actually happy w the end result. In extreme cases I decline the requests until a better photo is given to me. I try to paint in a more loose way lately . This was done some 5yrs ago. Pastel on paper, 50x40cm.
