Family Portrait From Photo


These boys were told to hold still so their grandpa could take a photo. They could hardly wait to get back to their leaf fight. This autumn painting of three cousins, JORDAN, STEVEN & SCOTT was done from a photo snapped by their grandpa. Although the background in the photo was clear and detailed, I felt that an impressionistic background - splashes of watercolor - would concentrate the focus on the detailed realism of the portraits of the boys, like the eye focuses on a subject. This allows the viewer to see through the eye of the artist.

Like most of my children's action paintings, this is a hand-painted portrait from photo. To be clear, I only use photographs as reference material for my original paintings, often producing detailed pencil drawings on the canvas before I paint. My portraits are hand-painted original paintings done by looking at a photograph of the subject as if the subject were sitting in my studio. They are NOT painted over top of a mechanically reproduced photograph

Oh what amazing memories this brings back!! I have three brothers - and I swear, this could have been them as kids. And leaf fights - what fun that was. It's not just that your style is exquisite, your technique, perfect - but you have an ability to capture mood, moment, expression and memory all at the same time. What an amazing gift. Brilliant!

Hanne, your portrait paintings are just outstanding, and much better than a photograph, as with your talent and expertise in the use of colors and lines and elements, you are truly a one of a kind. I have shown your works to a few of my close friends, and after a very short time, they look at something, and ask, "Is that a Hanne Painting?", and I just chuckle to myself, as you are like Renoir, or Van Gogh, or Picasso, in the nicest way, as you have a special "style" of work, that noone could ever come close to! Just love your sharing of these fine pieces with us, Hanne! fave and vote
