View Full Version : Girl with a doll

I finished this painting this morning, and I thought I'd like to hear your comments on it... I've been working with this for so long I decided to call it finished, even though there are some bits that I'm still not perfectly happy with. It does look pretty good, though, if I don't look at it from too close a distance (and if I blur my eyes a bit :)).

Anyways, the painting was done on a 41 x 33 cm canvas board using a photo from the Reference image library as a reference.

Beautiful and charming painting ............ well done! I know what you mean when you say "if I don't look at it from too close a distance (and if I blur my eyes a bit" :D

Thank you all for the positive comments, and for the claps :)!
To be honest, I think that the photo of the painting looks better than the actual painting. My poor photography skills have done all the blurring for me and hidden most of the mistakes I've made while painting... :rolleyes:

Leena -
You are being far to critical of yourself. STOP THAT THIS INSTANT!
:) Did that work. :p

Seriously - this is impressive and beautiful, and paintings always look better a few steps back.
