Portrait Gallery - Post them here also!
 
What's on your easel (or in your sketchbook) this month?

Show a finished portrait or one in any stage of progress (WIP = Work in Progress). This thread is for showcasing your work; others will only critique your work if you request it.

So please show us what you've been up to this month. We'd love to see it.

If you welcome Comments and/or Critique, let us know when you post (ie: "Cs & Cs welcome")

Even if you have already shown it in the main portraiture forum, you are invited to showcase it in this thread, also, as this thread will remain in the Library Archives. (Portrait Swap WIP shots most welcome, too! Also Self-portraits... anything portrait)

And be sure to check out previous Portrait Galleries in the Archives. Lots of great work in there!

So... let's get those portraits set up in the gallery....

Seems like I'm first here... :wave:
I'm not sure if I can call it finished, but finally I did the first seflportrait that is not disaster! :lol:. Oil on canvas, 25x35 cm and I used burnt sienna, titanium white and ultramarine. From the mirror. C&C welcome.

dominika, I like what I see. Nice and warm. I still have to build up my courage for colour.

Here is what I am working on at the moment. I hope to be able to deliver it tomorrow and move on to the next commission. Can't keep my customers waiting for too long.

Dominika - Wonderful self portrait. Soft and yet intense.

Reinhard - Superb renderings as always. I think these are done!

Here are two recent studies from a live model. Oil on linen board. C&C welcome.

This is a copy of a self-portrait of David Leffel (I apologize to him to destroy his works):lol: . The goal for me is to study his style.

I like positive and negative comments.

Thank you!
