Commissioned portrait painting and how it all started

Just finished a commissioned portrait painting. A friend of mine and devotee of Swami Lakshmanjoo asked me to paint his portrait. This is not the first painting I made of him. It started years ago with me archiving and editing his photos in Photoshop. At a certain point I was so familiarized with his face that I started to draw portraits of him with oil pastel quite successfully. This encouraged me to try other faces too. Which led me work on a few commissioned pieces of children as well as a wedding gift for my brother and his wife among many other portraits I have been painting since and continue to paint. See some samples here…

If you would like to paint a portrait of you or your loved ones contact me for details.
