Carmen circa 1914
I paint a few commissioned portraits. This portrait of a client's grandmother turned out extremely well. I love her expression, the skin tones, the clothing and even the hair. She has so much "class", you can see it in her gaze. This is oil on Old Holland linen, the best surface I have worked on to date. It really does help to have a great surface when you're painting portraits in oil.
