Colleen's Birthday Present by Cathy Amendola

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

18×24 oil on canvas….this is the most recent commission for this wonderful family….little Colleen playing in the ball cage….
I decided to paint her a little more playful, tousled hair…a perky pink ribbon..
very much like the subject herself….

My painting style is described as, Classical Academic painting in oils, in the Italian Renaissance Manner …I incorporates elements into my paintings like that of the old Masters. (I use a graph on my reference and canvas,
then a charcoal sketch on the canvas, step #2 an underpainting and finally an oil painting) I hope you enjoy my work, and thank you for your visit…
