Portrait in manner of French 18C

 Oil on board

12 x 15 inches

This exemplifies the subtle skin tones only possible in traditional oil paintings.

These qualities are hard to reproduce on the internet and give be the most refined pleasure for the owner of a quality oil portrait.

The human face must be the most precious visual reference we have. The tradition of layered oil paint has been developed since the Renaissance to enable artists to catch the likeness and solidity of the human head in the portrait. This is an example of the three-dimensional illusion, produced by manipulating colours to create depth and a sense of permanence, impossible using other media and methods.
