Stella, Age 15

  • Painting
  • Oil paint
  • A3 portrait

This piece is of my 11 year old brother. I have always been intrigued by this format of oil painting, backed with a sombre expression. These characteristics are usually associated with traditional portraiture styles of the past. With this piece, I wanted to incorporate a more modern approach shown with the style of his hair and Adidas jumper. It is also intended to be highly contrasted, with a spotlight effect.
