Winter is Coming - Portrait, Acrylic on Canvas

"Winter Is Coming"
Acrylic on Canvas

The model was wearing a warm scarf, and it made me smile when shortly after we got our first big snow of the year, she must have known that winter was coming, and coming soon. :)

For this portrait I used a canvas that had an abstract pattern already painted on it, with the idea of covering the pattern in most areas, leaving only a few hints of it here and there.
When I started the new painting I really liked the pattern background and how it was peaking through everywhere, so I kept it as part of the composition.

Overall I am really pleased with this painting.  And thinking that I was really intimidated by painting people, now I can do portraits that really resemble the model, woohoo!  :)
