Artwork / 2005 / Guillaume

painted portrait of white man
Gwenn Seemel
acrylic on canvas
26 x 20 inches

This is one of two portraits that I painted of a Hollywood star who commissioned me: this is the other. I don’t normally paint people multiple times in order to fulfill a commission—though it does happen—but the pressure was on with an Academy Award winning subject!

This is also one of the first paintings I created with a new wide brush, which I talk about at length in this blog post. Notice the difference of brush strokes between this portrait and this one from a few months earlier.
