Time Lapse of me Painting this...

I'm brand new member here and glad I found this place!:wave:

Here's my latest painting. This is for a friend of mine who's daughter Amy died last year. So young and its been very hard on him and his wife. He asked me to paint this to give to wife... I did another you tube time lapse of me painting... I think it took me around 9 hours! I'm so slow but the video makes it look fast! I put her name in the wing of the angel..

Any comments welcome... thanks!

Welcome to the Acrylics Forum, John. Glad you found us.

I love your angel. That is really beautiful. You have really picked up the light striking the stone wing.

That is some intense drawing, with a pencil or a brush. Well done.

It is a heartfelt painting and very well done. The composition is beautiful with the angel's face away from the light and the long sweeping bright line of the wing in the foregroud. I hope it will bring some measure of comfort, not necessarily the picture itself but the love and support it shows from you to this couple.

I watched the video last night and seeing it zoomed in at the end it looked even better.
