Tan Sri Hassan Marican On His Farewell Day

A Portrait Of Tan Sri Hassan Marican

A commission from Education Division Petronas as a gift to Tan Sri Hassan Marican on his farewell day.
I received a call from puan Dzalina herself on last saturday evening just 2 days before the event. She offered me to draw a portrait of a special man,a former president and chief executive officer (CEO) of the petronas. This is a last minutes, but of course the answer was definetly yes! Infact,I'm waiting a chance to get commission to draw this great man. Honestly,i'm a big fan of tan sri himself. I admired his contributed bringing up and transforming Petronas into a strong and profitable company that benefited Malaysians in all forms of subsidies, fiscal policies and economic plans. A big hug from me to kak D, who always have faith on me.Thank you kak D.

A phrase from tan sri himself on his thank you note that i really love :
The Global Championship journey will never end - it continues. Remember,if it ends,it will be the beginning of the end.- Tan Sri Hassan Marican

In Petrosains guess room.

Portrait Photography In 3 Simple Tips

Sharp And Clear
You might ask 'What kind of photos do we need to draw or to paint a portrait?'
Our reply will always be 'a good clear photo'.One that truly captures the personality and character of the subject.
Due to us might not being able to meet you in person, we have to work out on photographs, and these are the only way for us to get to know you or the subject.
And now,with the advantages of digital cameras, its easy to take photos as many as you wish in one session...and come out with at least one or two good photos that you feel really capture your portrait.
Since there's no any processing costs involved with digital photography, better to keep snapping away until you are happy with your results. After all you can just delete them if you don't like ! Still,it's free.

Try to use natural lighting when possible.This is very important.If you are unable to take photos outside, taking pictures by a window is the best choice. The more natural light the better.

The painting or drawing you commission will be displayed on the wall at eye level. So it makes much more sense to be looking straight at your portrait eyes. Photos taken from your portrait eye level will help us to produce a painting or drawing that will look perfect.
Still,if you would like to ask for advice,feel free to contact us at any time.We would love to see your photographs and you are welcome to email them to us for our opinion. We look forward to seeing them soon!
