Charlotte Rampling ? I love those eyes, especially the one with the drooping eyelid. Yes, it's her ....
If Simone Signoret were still alive you would paint her a most characterfull portrait ...

Gorgeous series !

It takes my breath away:) Superb, superb, Anthony.

these portraits are so organic. as if they have been born out of the soil..yet the colorful eyes make them instantly human and alive...beautiful. the scale makes them 'larger than life'..well obviously..but you know what i mean. ;)

Is this finished, Anthoney? I feel the shoulders are a bit crisp - hard edge.

I am a fan of this series, and loved seeing them all together in your flat!

Thanks all!

Daniel, I'll probably do some more- who knows..although I have a couple of ideas of variants on the theme.
Chuck Close I have great respect for but no he hasn't been an influence on my work.

Gavin knowing when to stop has been one of the trickiest aspects of this series and I agree it looks a little flat on the monitor but "in life" I thought it worked. I'll try and get a decent photo of them all up in the gallery and post it.

Anthony, I so admire your work.

Are you using only two variants of flesh color in your portraits? A dark and a light? It appears so. If so, it is interesting that with just two variants/mixes that you can say so much about a character.

I'd be interested in what mixes you do, in fact, use.

Anthony...you work never ceases to make me gasp

The color variation combined with the structure of the strokes is PERFECT

Your ability to get shape from such limited value changes is profound

I regret that I did not see the rest of the series and will go looking for it now.

Linda, Kim and Pam thanks

Dana- at the end I was usuing more or less only the three primaries in the form of Cad.Yellow, Ultramarine and Light Red and White of course.

Thank you, Anthony! I'm getting out my mixing knife and will try to work on this!
