Year Painted: 2011

 

This portrait was commissioned by a client in Croatia as a Christmas present for his friends from Netherlands.  He could only get this one reference picture that has really bad lighting  on it, but somehow I managed to do it. The real problem was the part of the face that was in shadow, I couldn’t get the eye colour straight. After some consulting and finding some other pictures of Noska, we got it right.

Here is the clients reaction when he saw the portrait:

 

Wow!!! This is great!! The eye matches the head so much better now!
How did you get a digital photo so good? It surprised me how good it turned out printed on photo paper!
I will let you know what my friend has to say about the portrait.
Best regards!
I.

See how the reference photo and close up details looked like.
