Just realised I hadn't blogged about this. It's my most recent portrait commission, but it's been finished for a while.
It was done for the same lady as my portrait of Shirl was for. It's her husband's father, with her husband as a baby. As he was killed in WW2 they had very few photos (I think this might have been the only one) and although we considered doing just a head-and-shoulders composition, to match the other portraits, they decided on using the whole photo (without the background)
Here's a progress animation:
It took roughly 21 hours overall, mainly because it included two people, and the reference wasn't very clear, which required a lot of research. It's 28x35cm in size on Quill Cartridge Paper.
