Your quiet colour harmonies work very well.

Re: Marit

thanks for the comments, Harry I think the biggest advantage of this very limited Zorn palet is that the color harmony comes kind of automatically without any real extra effort. Walter

Re: Marit

Very dramatic. Just for the sake of curiosity, how much did you charge it ?

Re: Marit

It is the sister of my daughter in law , I gave it for free including the frame. I do not make money with my painting but maybe I should do a few non-family commisions and charge something like 500 euros for a portrait, Walter.

Re: Marit

They would certainly be worth that at least. Your portraits are superb.
