This portrait is painted in pastels (soft) on suede-finish mat board, a surface perfect to give subtle blending to skin tones. The painting was done when this great-grandmother was in her mid 80’s. She was still a beautiful woman and her inner peace and graciousness surrounded her. I removed her glasses so they couldn’t obscure her lovely eyes. This painting is in my gallery page of sold art and is a sample of the type of commissioned portraits I create.
