These days I have finished a portrait that a client has commissioned me by providing me with the photo of his daughter on horseback.
For this portrait I chose a middle ground between abstract and figurative, not focusing too much on the details, also because in the photo the girl’s face is small and in shadow and the features are not clearly seen.
However, I feel satisfied with the result, on the whole it gives the idea of a natural landscape in a somewhat country style.
And the customer is also satisfied, which when it comes to a commission is the most important thing.
I made the portrait with oil paint on a canvas 50 x 60 cm.
