This is a really good painting, should be on canvas and framed, and hanging on someones wall. One thing, if I may tho, the lines/cracks, on upper lip, seem a little harsh, just because my eye was drawn to them, could be a tad more subtle.

I thought I saw this guy on TV recently! :lol: Wonderful portrait, Maria! Great color and light. :)

Maria, I have to say that despite your questionable subject matter, I feel that the painting quality is off the charts! By looking at your paint strokes, I can visualize your hand motions and the care that you must have taken to create such a great portrait. You've taken a lemon and made lemonade.:)

Thank you Maria. Paint on Sister!!!;)

Thanks all.

Greg, about the lines I would say that they were there. I painted a very few, after finishing the portrait. Yup, after finish, I realised that I didnot paint the lines on lips..lol. But yes, I can tone them down. Thanks for the insight.

Andie, thanks.

Aggie, lol. Hehe, yes, he is a cutie..:lol: Thanks.

Kirk, yes he is a celebrity. Portrait Master, Joel Cooper. Thanks btw.

Joel, I would say, after Harris, you have become my favorit portrait subject too.:lol: It was a delight to paint your portrait. About one thing I would say, sorry for the colors which I spilt on your portrait..:lol: I tried my best not to use those colors but it happened.:( Thanks for the feedback master. I am glad you liked it with all those colors.:D

Jean, thanks. BTW, who is Beautiful? :lol: Just kidding.:D

Maria, another masterpiece. Love the brush strokes. When I saw this portrait in the Challenge thread in your absense, I pridict by the colors and stroke work that I could be yours. And yes, its you once again. You play very well with the colors and the strokes are devine. Love this piece.:thumbsup:
