Thanks to Afsaneh for the use of this beautiful photo from the RIL
Acrylic on canvas board
14 x 10 inches
I have done a few drawings of women and a couple of portrait paintings from my imagination, but this is my first real portrait painting.

This is a lovely portrait and very nice work.I like the different shades without color. Gives it a nice mood.

Well done, nice fade into background with her hair, she has a very ethereal look, lovely eyes.

This is very beautiful. Didn't think b&w could be so gorgeous. Well done.

Beautiful handling of acrylics with your soft blending. Very romantic and beguilingly interesting.
