not knowing what to paint....i stumbled on a pic. which was taken three years ago and was hanging around on my PC...we were at a party and posed for this shot as a bit of fun...so i had a go at it...it started off in a looser fashion ...but then i got caught up in more details...(it happens)..lol...
so see what you all think...C&C welcome although i'm done with it.. it needed smaller brushes and i was tempted to use a pen for the finer details..but carried on regardless...it's 10''x4'' on acrylic paper...i like doing portraits but i'm not very good at it i know...so just take it at face value.....lol.

I think it's well done .. mind you the concept is a little old but 3 silly gals give it a youthful twinkle :D

That's great! I know I haven't seen the reference photo, but all the details look fine to me.

Are you kidding .. I'm too young to die :D

PS .. I found your Cezanne .. pretty cool pic .. I'll do it one day but right now I'm stuck at work doing 12 to 15 hour shifts for the next 3 days so there won't be any painting going on till at least Thursday or Friday. :D Dang that suks big time.

Caroline: this is excellent. Yeah it is an old idea but at least the girls are more attractive than monkeys.

Which one are you?

I think it is great! I love the expression on your daughter's face - a little embarassed about being caught acting so silly?? Great job, and I agree with Blair - I think a larger one should be next!!
