Portrait of Dr. Fawzi Abdulrazak
30" x 40", oil on linen
Portrait commissions are fun to paint. I require a photo session where I take photos of the subject. The bulk of the painting is done from these photo references. The client then approves the progress and visits my studio for the final sitting which takes about an hour to finalize details. I am glad to make any changes to the portrait.

This portrait commission was a fun and challenging experience for me.
