Five New Portrait sketches.

My Wife and I have just said goodbye to some lovely house guests.

Joseph Penninger with his wife Liqun and their three beautiful children had a nice visit to Toronto and Quebec.

While they were visiting Quebec, I was commissioned to paint their portraits from photos taken earlier in the week and this was a challenging project.

Here are the results... and YES Joseph's hair really is that crazy!!!!
( perhaps brilliant scientists have so much brain activity their hair grows this way )

Wow, Andrew!
I love these. They are so vivid and natural. The portrait of Josef is outstanding. I was wondering how big they are.
Hope you are fine.

Hey Nue!!

These are aprox 12 inches by 12 inches.

As you know... I prefer working from life and not photos but kids don't sit still very well.

I was happy with the results.

Things are good and busy too.

Cheers and we'll talk soon.
