I LOVE the touches of colour in the cheeks - so expressive. Great painting.

I really love how you've balanced great expressive colors in this one, Harry! And, yes...I love the colors in her cheek and everywhere else!

Re: WDE May 11th: Walidah

Harry,your portrait is so cool.I saw the Deano's work yesterday.He used red for underpaint and sccessed to making so warm expression on her skin.
Your base colors are cold kinds but you also make something warm expression on her.
It's so wonderful!
I love both Deano's & yours.
