Alex and Svetlana Tango Painting Commission

This is a portrait commission of two tango dancers Alex and Svetlana. I worked from photos that I took of the two of them. From the photoshoot they chose about 20 images that they thought would be good. The first image is the completed portrait which is 20"x20" on linen.

Here's the underpainting which was done in an imprimatura layer.
I work from background to foreground so I started by toning up the background.

Next I worked on the face.
