WIP: Jesus (commissioned work)

Happy with the progress on my Jesus painting today. Been frustrated with the flatness I was getting, so I decided to bring out my oil paints to lend body and softness to the work. It's slowly getting there... Extra pressure to get the face right, especially since the Divine Mercy devotion is all about the gaze of Jesus.#wip #portrait #divinemercy #Jesus #painting

Was staring at these feet the whole afternoon. Had to dismount and roll up the canvas and work on a table to get a good position to do these letters.  Didn't realize that canvas would be so heavy with paint! Happy to be almost done with this work. Trusting it will all work out. #wip #divinemercy #jesus #painting

Saying my final goodbye to Jesus before this commissioned work gets picked up today. Literally a labor of love over 3 months-- I redid his face 4 times just to get the gaze right! Hope it inspires devotees in the parish where it will be hung. Thanks for the trust, Msgr. Romy. #divinemercy #jesus #painting #artph
