Portrait of my Mother

Portrait of my Mother, oil painting by Edith van Duin-Schermer, 2011
Portrait of my Mother, 2011

My mother is so patient! She very willingly spent 2 hours posing for this painting. During this time I think I made 500 photo’s. Out of these, I selected the best ones to create her portrait. The red flowers my mother was holding were painted, dried flowers. At the end of the 2-hour session, they had turned the water pink! The pink color didn’t fit too well in the color scheme though, so I did paint colorless, pure water!

2011, Oil on linen, 55x80cm (21.7×31.5″)
