Luigi Quirici

Luigi Quirici - Portrait in Oils - Linen Canvas

When Luigi's wife commissioned me to paint Luigi's portrait, after he unexpectedly passed away, I felt extremely privileged and humbled to be given such an important task. Luigi was larger than life and had the charm and warmth so unique to his Italian roots. I was lucky enough to spend quality time with Denise and Luigi in Italy a few years ago so his personality was very much a part of the painting process. I loved his colouring and proportions and the fact that there was so much life in his face. It was a joy to paint!
