Portrait of Ms. Rychter | Karl M Jahnke
One of a Kind Oil on Wood Panel
60" x 36"
I hired a model, who had made the dress herself, and took dozens of reference photos before I settled on the final painting. I also hired a local carpenter to build the wood panel for the painting. I had invested weeks of work before I even applied any paint. This amount of work isn't common in my usual process, but I wanted to try a different approach on this one. - Karl Jahnke
