Family Portrait From Photo

Unfortunately, I never met Mrs. Mann; however, according to her devoted son, she was a kind, loving mother. Contemporary portraiture, like today's lifestyle, is becoming less formal and rigid now that a subject can easily be captured in a natural unpretentious composition with the aid of photography. Naturally, as a Canadian portrait painter, I prefer to work from good color photos but I realize they are sometimes hard to come by so I do the best I can with the photos I am given. I can work from photos as small as 1.5" x 2" and in black-and-white to produce a colorful portrait such as was the case with the painting done posthumously shown here.
