My (almost) first portrait painting

Having visited the Bonn art museum today and having seen a lot of painted portraits I was so inspired that I couldn’t sit still. When our friends Mer & Joolz had been here recently I had made some portrait photos of them and one of Mer came to my mind that could be a good model for a painting:

So I did what I’ve only done once before: I painted a portrait. I’ve drawn quite a few portraits before but such a painting was new to me…

 

EDIT: What could not be seen well from the scan above is that the hair as well as the iris are painted with gold. Which leads to a change of appearance of the painting depending on the angle from which you look on it.

Here’s another photo from a different angle that illustrates this effect:
