Family portrait, original, 18″x24″, Charcoal, David Zamudio


Example of finished 18″ x 24″ portrait in charcoal commissioned by a private party.
I combined numerous individual photos of the subjects-provided by the family-to create the appearance of a family group gathered together for one sitting. The client was overjoyed with the comprehensive final portrait that is displayed above.

The task was a challenging for several reasons:
1) Small sized existing photos of the individuals.
2) Picture quality resolution varies greatly from photo to photo.
3) Individual poses, features, expression and correct age had to be created.

personalized portraits for individuals, executives, couples and families. Zamudios painted portraiture goes beyond photographic realism or impressionistic similarity in depicting the subject because he creates a representative portrayal of expression of character and captures the essence of the soul.
