My Family Portrait

Dhanushika, Age 12

  • Painting
  • Acrylic on canvas
  • A2 landscape

My family portrait project took 1.5 months to complete. The pillars are painted with acrylic with a pink and white combination using a black marker as an outline. It was hard to paint with tones, details, shadow for dad and brother. Mother and grandmother are with bright and attractive colours. Clothes were painted different shades to get different colour stripes. Grandfather and groom were in white clothes, with gold border by painting with gold leaf and outlined with a marker. I and bride had heavy details mostly wearing dark red blended with different colours. I chose to use the silver leaf for background, gold leaf for jewels.
