This is going to be a pretty quick post because I´m not happy with the outcome of my Oscar Portrait, but I have to post about it anyway, because this blog is essentially my journal, and also I´m tired of thinking about this horrible Covid-19 pandemic! I started it before the Jack portrait but I put it aside to make Jack Here which I thought would be much harder, but it actually wasn’t.
I really battled with Oscar, I chose a horrible photo, which really doesn’t do him any justice at all, and it all just went downhill from there. So now Oscar´s face kind of looks like a koala and the fur is so….boring.
Oscar has 2 coats, one for summer and one for winter, here he´s wearing his summer coat.
And here he´s wearing his winter coat 😊
Well, the most important lesson I took from making this portrait was – Make sure you love the photo that you will be working from and that it truly inspires you. I am currently choosing a photo for my next subject, and this time I’m really thinking about it and taking my time.
Even though I´m not overly pleased with the result I still hang them up on our home office wall, nobody really goes there, except me 🙂
