Getting one portrait right is hard enough!!!

Getting one portrait right is hard enough!!!

When my Friend asked if I would do a portrait of her Daughter and Friend together as a special 18th Birthday present, I agreed. Then, she asked if I would do it as ‘Now AND Then’ as they had been friends since the very first day of school. I think I held my breath the whole time I was painting it. Starting one portrait over again is hard enough to bear should anything go wrong, but when I got to the third face I was terrified I might make a mistake. Thankfully all went to plan. This was the finished result. (See thumbnails of the photographs I worked from below)
