Abby and her Gram by Cathy Amendola

Currently unavailable for purchase

20×24 oil on canvas This is detail of the commission, a birthday gift for Abby..
which includes the portrait of her with her Grandmother….

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…

    LOL! I thought it must have been a miniature, and was wondering how you managed to do it with such perfection at that size! Try uploading it again – it might have just been a glitch. What is your original image size? Perhaps it is small too and you might have had your camera on the wrong setting or something. Maybe make the dimensions of your photos larger on the image. If this doesn’t help send me a bmail and I’ll give you my email address to send the original image and I’ll have a look at it……. xx

    Just doing a little experiment here, so you can delete this comment if you wish Cathy. I am using the RB image conversion tool to see if I can make it larger. (Might not work – won’t know until I add the comment)!!!
