This portrait was commissioned by my internet friend. She was one of my first clients, and this was her third portrait commission. It wasn’t the first time I did a pastel portrait this big, but it was the first so detailed one. I enjoyed it very much! And it took me 6 months on and off to paint it.
Due to some occasions and misfortunes which I am very sorry they happened, this portrait reached it’s owner only in 2012. Sadly, because it was after her beloved Khia died. At least, I hope it serves as a nice memory of him.
See how the reference photo and close up details looked like.
