New painting: Sister Double Portrait

My sister asked me to paint this portrait of us a while ago… Since I am not a portrait painter I kept procrastinating until.. well this Christmas… And this is what came out.

On the whole I’m very happy with the result and the use of colour which reminds me of two artists that have a big impact on my life; my art teacher/mentor Olaug Vethal who passed away a couple of years back and well known Maltese artist Luciano Micallef who’s work I have always loved…

I might actually do some more painting soon as I really enjoyed this one.. However I will choose the subject next time ;)
