I Have An Eye For The Girls



I really enjoyed doing this one. Used FC Polychromos on Bristol Board. Thanks so much for looking. All comments welcome.

Re: I Have An Eye For The Girls

Wow - I love the wrinkles and the folds around the nose they are beautiful. The best is the eye and the reflections. Amazing.

Re: I Have An Eye For The Girls

Mary. Thank you very much for the positive feedback.

Marie. Wow, that's great that you really liked this one. Gives me so much encouragement. The blues I used were a tiny touch of light Ultramarine blue and all the rest were Indigo which is used lightly in places, darkened areas etc. I love Indigo is can be wonderfully soft and greyish and makes great darks.

Robin. Thank for the plus, plus,plus. Great compliment. We once had a wonderful boxer when I was a teenager but he had one strange habit. He would quietly come behind any young guy who came to take me out, wrap his front paws around the chap's leg and poor guy would fall ceremoniously onto his knees. It was very funny and we , as a family, had a real problem not to pack up laughing. He never grew out of the habit.

Michelle. Really appreciate the feedback. The reflection in the eye was a challenge.

Re: I Have An Eye For The Girls

Oh. wow, I am overwhelmed by the enthusiasm for this one. Got a great big lump in my throat because to be honest , I just enjoyed my CP's with this one so much. Thank you CP friends, Eileen, Angela and Pat. Really, really appreciate the feedback.

Re: I Have An Eye For The Girls

This is superb! Colors, details, the added interest of the reflection in the eye...everything comes together to make this a wonderful painting!

Re: I Have An Eye For The Girls

Candle. Thank you so much.

Karen, you are so funny with those two whacky characters. Thank you.

Lynette, wish we could have met when I was in Joeys last month! No girl. Maybe I should have put one there!!! Glad you liked it.
