Portrait oil

Portrait oil

A special portrait

Portrait of a girl on the day of her First Communion.

This portrait of a girl dressed for communion done in traditional oil paint is a challenge because the composition had to give a stately and elegant appearance.

In the work we observe that the seated figure of the girl appears, with a lace dress and a relaxed body position, looking at the viewer, transmitting serenity without losing that “childlike” touch of the model. In the background, in earth tones and textures, the drawing of St. Peter’s Basilica of the Vatican is subtly integrated, finished in the contemporary realism technique, in this way, this area does not take away the prominence of the portrait but is perfectly integrated into the the whole composition.

It is a beautiful memory of the day of communion that the protagonist had in the Vatican, hence remembering that special day in this work.

 

 

Technically, a fine-grain Belgian linen canvas from Claessens, reference 113, has been used. The oil paints from the Old Holland, Schmincke (Mussini line) and Mir brands have been treated with Old Holland linseed oils. Finally, the work is varnished with a glossy Schmincke brand spray, with great UV protection.
