The portrait painting was created over a number of days from an old blurry reference photo shared by the client. The painting was of large dimensions of size 40 inches x 30 inches (3.5 ft x 2.5 ft approx), as befitting a tall leader.

The challenging part of creating the portrait was to capture the twinkle of wisdom in his eyes and the glow of leadership of his personality. Notice the brush strokes, the color palette, the interplay of different shades used to bring out the essence of the person, his values and his vision.

Our hard work was much loved by the client as can be seen by the reaction at the end of the video. Also we have shared the reference photo from which we have created the oil portrait painting.

Medium: oil painting on canvas 🎨

Size: 40 inches x 30 inches (3.5 ft x 2.5 ft)

Why should You get your oil portrait painted?

https://www.instagram.com/p/BkkTorBDyop/?taken-by=paintphotographs

This question was asked by friends and family, when we started this project. After all, people have mobile in their pockets and take selfies all the time while eating, catching up with friends, going to the theatre, and so on. So why will people want a portrait?

Indeed it’s an interesting question. And our reasoning was counter intuitive. Because people take so many photos all the time, and post it on their social media, the really cherished photos, the moments, get lost in the time line, buried under newer & newer social media posts and ultimately fades from memory.  Indeed the selfie culture has given rise to the movement of impermanence, where everything is recorded but nothing is remembered. Where the real treasured moments gets buried and forgotten under the irrelevant noise.

A good hand painted oil portrait or sketch makes that cherished moment permanent. It adds depth and personality to the subject, in a way that no HD camera or selfie, can ever hope to capture. A brush stroke of an accomplished artist, can add a shadow under the eye, to make it more mysterious, a flick of the brush, can enhance the smile and make it more appealing. An artist adds to the personality of the subject, adds to the grandeur of the moment and adds permanence to the moment.

And that’s why you need an oil painting, gracing your walls, in front of you always, reminding you of the ‘good old days’, a sign of permanence, in the ever changing and uncertain world. A place for your treasured memories, for you to cherish forever, long after the selfie was posted, consumed by likes, shares & comments, and then forgotten.
