Dave, is that oil or watercolor? You've caught her essence!

Hi Nancy

That painting I did with Twisted Brush a digital software program. I find it excellent as I can paint with it just like when I am with the traditional media. In this painting I was actually using mainly two brushes/techniques. A palette knife and an image brush. The latter probably has no meaning for the unfamiliar but it allows you to pick up multiple colours with one daub of the brush. In the traditional sense the same as mixing paint on the palette as you draw a brush thru different colours and then do the final mixing on the canvas.

Cheers
Dave

Re: Sargent: Portrait Challenge for April & May

Thank you, Nancy and Sandra, for your kind compliments. I will see if I can do other drawings, this time in toned paper, and have more fun copying Sargent.

This is nice, wjrmonkey, can´t wait to see part three!!

Nice work, Dave61123! That girl wearing white muslim looks good.

Re: Sargent: Portrait Challenge for April & May

Hello!

I'm usually a lurker in the various WC challenges, but these Sargent portraits intrigued me and so I decided to give it a whirl. This my first portrait challenge post and I had a lot of fun doing this!! I would love to hear what you all think and how I can do better! (I think her face should have been a bit longer...and I didn't address the ear area much. Also really tried to keep this loose as I tend to get too detailed.)

I am also impressed by all the amazing work here!

Nice and loose brushwork, Ruth! I like how she emerges from the background. Maybe soften the edge where the forehead meets the background?

Re: Sargent: Portrait Challenge for April & May

Lots of good work already and it’s still May, this is going to be a interesting thread.
Here is my effort at the Italian Woman. It started off with a drawing using Transparent Brown which turned into a tonal study that I hadn’t intended to do.


 
Then I painted into the Trans Brown with colour.

Looks interesting, but could you post a bigger photo? It's hard to see any detail in the current one and her back looks really nice! I think the blue background works well too.
