carolyn this is stunning. I like the way the lower part is left just sketched in. Makes one really look at the face and see the personality that you have captured so well

All I can say is WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Ditto on the wow--without my glasses on (my sight isn't that bad:lol: ) it looks like a photograph. Your client couldn't dream of anything better.

Stunning portrait. I went to your website. You have massive talent and think you are underpaid for what you produce! Wow. Wow.

Terrific portrait. Just enough left out to make it interesting.

That's just rediculously good

skallagrig...show her my post by all means. I'd just start charging more on the next commissions, unless you are happy with what you are getting and it brings a larger volume of work with your prices. Don't overcharge to the point you get no work. I don't charge near what you do, but still make a decent amount (on much lesser talent). I just only get the commissions around Christmas. Nothing much during the rest of the year.

This painting is magnificent. It's even better than any photograph and I agree your talent is stupendous!!! I don't even want to know what you are charging - but I am going to recommend you look at other portrait painters and make sure it's a fair price. They should be paying a lot for this type of work.
Now back to the painting... I like the pose and especially like the train!!! I keep having to check it out and see what it is your do to make it look so 3 dimensional. Wow!!!
03-28-2007, 12:20 PM
Wow!!! This is fantastic! Love the shirt and the hair and the pose and.......everything! Well done.
03-28-2007, 01:04 PM
Whoa...that is STUNNING. Nice work!

Back from my hols! NZ is a wonderful place, i'm very envious of anyone who lives there!
Thank you for all the lovely comments and the advice on pricing, one of the most difficult things i find after presenting the finished painting.
Actually doing the portraits are the easiest bit, the marketing and selling yourself are a nightmare! :eek:
