This is a value study of Mother Theresa I consider her one of the great humanitarians-Comments welcome

Resentment is like taking poison, in hopes your enemy will die.

This is an awesome painting. You truly captured the feeling and depth of the subject. I hope you are doing more portraits.

by making the background the same value as the head you created a problem for yourself....and that is, in order to differentiate between the two, you had to resort to a dark halo around the head. it doesn't read well. it would have been better to simply have a darker solid background.

Hello again,

This is a wonderful portrait of a very old soul. The great sadness she carries in that soul shines from those haunting eyes.
You captured that perfectly.

I also like the aged effect of the rough paper. It really enhances the painting.

Irene Clark with a heart for art.
