Beautiful portrait. Wish I knew how to get skin tones like that. Like seeing the progression.

Re: Portrait (Progressive fotos)

Beautiful portrait. Thanks for sharing WIP. Nice to see the different stages and all of it coming together. I have a friend who does what you do.. paint the eyes last instead of first. Too creepy for me.

Re: Portrait (Progressive fotos)

Humbaba , Richard Moore , oldglory - Thank you very much!

Alan , you are responsible for my patience in details. Thank you very much

Dave - Thank you very much

WFMartin - Mr Martin , thank you very much! Yes i have not used small or big, round brushes for this type of work in the past because it was very difficult for me , i didn't know how to apply the collour with these. But now that i am painting with more details i discovered that these are very easy and very usefull. These types of brushes needs some oil or tuppertine and after that can make miracles!

Phranque - In the latest paintings when i start applying colour in canvas i am determined to paint something loser with no so much details , but every time the result is a realism. I don't know why happens that. perhaps the problem is tha i have unlimited time for my painting. Next time , maybe i 'll try a painting with timetable.

bethanyt - Thank you very much! I 'll do it soon.

Kenny Hill - Thank you.I don't know at all how many time it took me, because i don't paint every day neither i paint with colours every day.But if calculate it, it must be more or less, 7 or 8 days with 2 hours a day.

billmahler - I don't like these sharp creases in her neck. You are right. But i decided to let tha neck and the hair little bit looser.

Derek , selectedgrub, , RLangford - Thank you, thank you very much!

JCannon - Thank you very much for your nice words. I aggre with your teacher. This is that i am trying to do. I discovered that the collour of the skin have all collours on it. The collour of the hair, tha collour of the eyes, of the lips, of the blouse,of the wall etc..

Animale38 - Thank you very much. with small round brushes and with no fear. add all collours you have in your palette, and experiment with all of them. You 'll see that it is very easy.

artlover55 - I am glad that you like it

bhindi - Thank you very much. I think that this way of painting the eyes is more difficult. I paint the eyes with different ways every time but I don't suggest this way.

Small, pointed rounds do not have to be used specifically for fine detail, and fine lines. Purchase a bit stiffer version (just a BIT stiffer--not hog bristle) of a round brush, and you can use it to great advantage scumbling, and applying glaze layers, scrubbing the paint out into a thin layer.

In fact, I often use what I call a "short liner" brush, for applying paint to a portrait. I am always seeking a bit stiffer bristle brush for this purpose. I have decided to obtain a couple of Silverbrush's Ruby Satin liner brushes for this purpose, because they are a bit stiffer than a Taklon bristle brush, and they can be used quite effectively for glazing. I'm going to get my Ruby Satins from "The Art Treehouse"--a private company, good man, good products.

Love the work in progress shots and it turned out beautifully and I love the bright colors that cause the piece to radiate.

Re: Portrait (Progressive fotos)

Just beautifully done.. thanks for the progression!!
Wonderfull colors all thruout the skin tones !!
May I ask was it done -- letting it dry in between ?
I'm so use to allaprima painting .. mostly in one setting !
I admire those who can work into dry and do glazing

Re: Portrait (Progressive fotos)

WFMartin - Μr Martin , i am using more often the round brushes now. I understood the usefulness of them.
i saw the webpage. It have nice prices.

OziAfricana, Cjorgensen - Thank you a lot. i am glad that you like it.

snoball - I appreciate your opinion. Thank you very very much!

Boafamily,Prism914 - I love the progress shots too. For this reason i am trying not forget to take photos while i am painting and share with others.

carolkay - ms Carol , sometimes dries,sometimes not. I often working the next day over the previus layer and some parts are dry and some parts are wet. in both ways i behave the surface with the same way. the only part in this painting that i wanted be completely dry for the next layer,was the hair.

oldnmartist - Thank you very much!

Re: Portrait (Progressive fotos)

A bit photo-styled ... in the wrinkles and lips with hyper-attention to detail ... less attention in the stiff hair.

Such raw-ness of line-art appears awesome and majestic on 1st glance ... but I am not certain upon repeat viewing. I may look again another day, Lord willing, and reserve my opinion 'till then.
