Re: A Portrait of Irma

I agree with others who have said this is your best piece to date. I'd definitely do more portrait work if I were you!

Re: A Portrait of Irma

My goodness, I am overwhelmed by this beautiful portrait in pastel. The way you have rendered the heavy lids is brilliant. Took a look at your website, it is fantastic.

Re: A Portrait of Irma

This is simply beautiful Ruthie. I think this is where your greatest talent lies - truthful portraits which find beauty in every visage, no matter what age or gender. Kat

Re: A Portrait of Irma

Thank you dannimac and Deirdre! I'm beginning to believe this is good and am wondering whether I should have charged her more for it!!
