My current coworker commissioned me to create a portrait of himself and his wife. I believe this will be a anniversary gift to her early next year.
The pattern took me around two hours to create, followed by around ten or so hours cutting over a period of a couple of weeks to complete. Once I was able to complete her hair, the rest went easy! ;-)
Piece measures around 10×14 and is cut into good ol’ baltic birch plywood.
Finish consisted of a soak in lemon oil and then a backing of thick felt.
He certainly was pleased – here’s hoping she will be as well!
