Contemporary Group portrait

I love Seventeenth century Dutch paintings. One of the genre’s that was quite popular was the group portrait. This is the contemporary equivalent. I think it would look absolutely amazing!

To make this even more a modern version of those old Dutch group portraits this one will have text added as if it were a magazine article and I have made a stylized alteration to the image which reduces the detail and creates a vectorized effect. This isn’t apparent until you see a detail view.

  • Painting size – To be determined, probably 65x119cm.
  • Materials – Birch panel with Chromacolour acrylic paint.
  • When – Maybe 2022.
  • Expected difficulties – The text is always difficult, the rest of the image is medium-level difficulty.
