Jerry, I've always thought you were consistently good and you mixed in the periodic WOWSA. But these last 6 weeks or so have been out of this world and I think you're yet still reaching for another gear. Been fun to watch.

Nice layout and a nice quality piece of work. I admire your skills with painting the eyes. The eye, nose, lip areas have the most impressive brush strokes... simple and yet very revealing. This is a fantastic piece of art; if my grandfather was here he'd say you do good work.

have fun,

Bocote

A dark beauty delicately portrayed. Energy surrounds. Beautiful work! Such clarity...so simple but so complex.

It's great!
Only tiny thing is a bit too much red to the eye to the right.
But fractionally so. Either more dark for eyeball, more skin, whatever.
I really like it.
Regards,
Jillian

I could look at this all day.

A brush stroke here, a brush stroke there...with a really stark pallette....and a living breathing woman appears..

Made my morning !

One of my faves of yours! I love how you treated her face (You put in some features!), your soft edges, and the liveliness of your dark and the few dashes of red. The puzzle pieces of the negative space also add interest. You, more than anyone or any book, have taught me about the importance of working to the edge and making an interesting negative space. Also, I was wondering the same as Andy about the dark...please share! (there's nothing idle about my curiousity) lisa

London { happy birthday, have some tequila}

oramasha {working to the edge is like massaging the whole body - a synesthesia works on the viewer.. see below (andyvry 's section) re black-not}

dupliKate {good therapy then}

champagneharley {yes red heavy will have to look later}

s-augustson {yeah right!}

Wayne Gaudon { honestly in a very short time it looked like the photo (the world is never satisfactory), then after a lot of effort it took on this nature which looks simpler but is not }

andyvry { black never, dioxane purple here, (this one) pthalo turquoise there often a build up with red and green }

bocote { sorry I missed your grandfather. will do - you too.}

somerset { and I was hoping I could just get away with it }

Carrie { diagonal DNA operating here}

artinoils, Murals By Aga { a persian princess IMO }

Ginette {has that effect on me too}

designditz {mee too}

{ honestly in a very short time it looked like the photo (the world is never satisfactory), then after a lot of effort it took on this nature which looks simpler but is not }

... that is the beauty of your work .. it looks simple but simple is not achieved by many .. it's not an easy task to know what to pull and what to keep ..

I like everything about this, Jerry. The perspective is what first caught my eye. The lighting is great, as well as the background. I appreciate the careful attention to the perspective of the human form. Great painting. Man, you have such a huge body of great work!

Paintonbrush {no, I am a bit scared, she looks much better in RL, so I will just sneak it in, she has never permitted a photo, Allan knows she declined when i askedafterwards, i hope to avoid a lwasuit by charm}

artbabe21 { DAY JOB isn't funatol}


jackart { hey }

andyvry { just a habit }

Chuck { great tip, bill collectors are right around the corner}


Wayne Gaudon { but mucho rewarding to look at after }

artbabe21 { a good place to put her}

I'm so glad I found this thread, Jerry! That expression is marvelous! the whole face.. that ear... perfect. Then that outfit! Just a little info that tells so much. I love it.

Is your camera really quiet?

You must have heckuva poker face while you grab the shots.

I don't know what medium you have used.
The brushstrokes remind me of a watercolour,
but there is something about the colours that
make me wonder.
Whatever, the show of skills on display are in my
view exceptional. It's so hard and yet so pleasing
to the eye to paint with minimal brushing.
So much in the mode of some oriental art.

Lines { acrylic (GOLDEN) on 16X16 in canvas - I use chinese 1 inch brights as brushes around 50UScents each, they shed a bit but are good after about 4 paintings they give a nice rough placement. my detail comes after process, if I paint it in it looks realistic but false.}

zapata { the camera has a tiny red lite to set exposure but no flash, indoors (this was) there is a delay between open and close of shutter, I have 100+ blurry photos, my face just hangs there with a stoopid grin.}
