Honorable Mention. PSOA, 2008.
The Portrait Society of America’s Members Showcase Competition Portraits by Subject.
Every artist would like to have this kind of a portrait painting story. Inna’s family is going to Venice Carnival every year. But this time we went there because of the portrait painting. Together we chose the dress and the best hotel room.
I sketched and photographed my model in Venice. Then I worked in my home studio.
Couple of times when my model Inna couldn’t come, I built a wire frame for the dress. Finally, I tried to paint clothes as real as possible, and same time not losing human psychological side.
