Portfolio for Adam Hahn - Commissionaportrait

A successful portrait must present more than a physical likeness. As the artist I feel it is essential to portray the sitter's character bringing the portrait to life and give the work its soul. I look for a definitive glance or expression that portrays a sitter's individuality, making a portrait unique. The use of a limited palette allows the viewers attention to be drawn more to the subtleties of the work.

Statement      Portrait commissions usually require one or two sittings. At the first sitting I like to discuss the portrait with the client and take a series of photographs. If I have an image that will transfer successfully as a painting I will send it to the client for their approval. If they are not happy with the image, or if I feel I have not captured a ‘true’ image of the sitter’s character, a second sitting is required. Drawings may be made but the sitting’s are primarily photographic.  
The commission process usually takes between 2-3 months.
