As many of you know I won Kim from Laketrees Christmas Competition. The prize was a portrait, and I chose my daughter, Laura, as the subject……..she’s younger than me and much prettier LOL
The portrait arrived here a few weeks ago when Laura was in Italy on a ski holiday with her school, and I had promised that I would wait until she was here for a weekend so that she could open it.
The weekend she was due here she was not well so it was delayed for another week. Last Friday I picked her up and she stayed for the weekend. The highlight of course, was opening the parcel! So here are the photo’s taken as she unwrapped and saw her portrait for the first time, although she had seen it online, but this was different.
So here is a sequence of photo’s starting with the unwrapping, then first look at the amazing portrait. A few photo’s so you can see the size and the expression on Laura’s face says it all 😀 Click the thumbnails for larger view.
The final three photo’s are of the portrait, the original photo in B&W for comparison and the origial color photo which was used as the ‘model’. The photo was A4 size and to produce a portrait which is some 350% larger and with perfect detail is quite an accomplishment.
It really is an awesome portrait, and we are both more than very pleased with it. Thank you so very much Kim, it’s a superb piece of art, which will grace the walls proudly for generations to come 😀
