We look forward to seeing some wonderful portraits on here -- please don't be shy!

Any medium, and WIPs (Work In Progress) shots are always very welcome.

Wonderful photos again Lauren, once I’ve finished the Holiday Swap I’ll give this a go

Re: November-December 2014 Portrait Challenge!

Netty and Dave -- Glad you like the photos.

Yes, I think we'd be smart to extend this challenge up into the new year, as the annual portrait swap -- and the holiday season -- keeps a lot of people busy during November and December.

Lulu -- I'm not sure where I can post them here.

(any suggestions, Mods?)

You can PM me your email address, let me know which photos you like best, and I can email you larger versions. I think the original files are 1 to 2 MB.

Re: November-December 2014 Portrait Challenge!

Great pictures Lauren. I wanted to get some portrait practice before attempting the swap portrait. so gave this one a shot.
Oil on 9x12 linen. C&C welcome.
I think her left eye is too big and I might rework it. Need to fix the right eyebrow also.

Re: November-December 2014 Portrait Challenge!

Nice work, Bhavani!

Really nice palette, there!
I think that your skin tones are working best in the face.

If you want some C & C: Warming up the shoulders a bit to match more is something I'd recommend, and also do something about that yellowish area in the neck.

Thanks for jumping in and getting things going!

Re: November-December 2014 Portrait Challenge!

Thanks Lauren for the feedback. I appreciate it. I reworked the shoulders and neck areas and have posted an update in a new thread in the forum.

Nice work, Irwin!

Though your shot of your drawing is kind of fuzzy, the eyes look nice and bright!
