The picture shows a recent demo piece for portrait painting in oil.
It is based on a celeb pic of Aussie actress Stephanie Jacobsen. I’ve added some embellishments and a few compositional tricks to hint at the intensity she brings to her roles. I was very impressed with the emotion she brought to her role in Battlestar ‘Razor’, I hope you enjoy it.
Traditional oil on board, painted from reference with some artistic licence, as a demonstration portrait piece.. and for the pure enjoyment of painting !
Original sold, but please feel free to contact me if you’d like a portrait commissioned – based on your concept we can create a unique piece.
btw, Id really like to see Steph play a Vulcan in the next Trek extravaganza…
“so say we all” :)
