'First Lesson' 2010~ by Jenna Millward Corkill

One of my favorite recent portrait commissions. This golfer was warming up for his tournament round, and let his son give him a helping hand for a moment. Mom captured a snapshot on her cellphone, and voila!, a portrait journey was begun. As well as being a portrait, this style can stand alone as a figurative painting. I really enjoy painting these commissions that use this less formal style of portraiture. Anyone can appreciate this little father son moment forever captured on canvas even though you may not know them personally.

This one's sold, but a similar size and style portrait, can easily be done from your photo.
