Re: Portrait Challenge - September - October 2010 - Return of the Masters!

Mariane, I really like the expression of the man in your first post. Very well rendered in my opinion.

The original Feichin drawing is very tense, it looks like all the muscles in her face are sculpted in the paper. You have rendered this tense look around her nose and mouth. I have lots of difficulties with eyes myself, always off...
but I see that her upper eyelid (her right eye) should be more apparent and rounded above her eye. There is also something to be corrected in her left eye as regards the direction she looks at. I can feel it but just cannot spot what it is. Not great help, just my two cents...

Geenbee, you captured her expression in a beautiful way. Hope to see the progress on this one soon.

Sizun
It needs someone with a fresh look at one's work to spot the problems,thank you for that. I can now see what you pointed out and try to remedy it. I like your rendition of the gentleman a lot.
Bonne nuit (ici)

Hi all, your paintings are really very inspiring and awesome.
I am not sure whether it is worth presenting this for your review and comments. Please feel free to post your comments. Very much appreciated.

It is done in water colours.

Re: Portrait Challenge - September - October 2010 - Return of the Masters!

Things have been a bit quiet on the challenge, so I will post my 4th effort and I think I'll have to start on one in oil or acrylic soon. I hope everybody is still working hard on their next painting/drawing. All the posts are a credit to the artists on this forum. Love to see more work!
Marianne

Thank you Robert for your comment, I admire your try at what I consider the most difficult painting in this thread. You captured it well.

Re: Portrait Challenge - September - October 2010 - Return of the Masters!

Hi Robert, I keep your comment as my good memory as it is the first one that I recieved in this Art world. Thank .. thank you so much! After many years I just started painting again.
I was hesitating and bit nervous to post it in this forum.
However I did it, because it is great to see and associate with well experienced artists and the C & C.

This has been lots of fun trying to emulate these portrait drawings..it´s almost like trying to imitate their handwriting. Here are my efforts..I hope you will like them!!

Rsriramula, it's a nice painting, very difficult to tackle this one in my opinion and you did well.
Marianne, your portrait on blue paper is a success. Grat likeness.
Pintor, three portraits ! We'll have to catch up on you !

Re: Portrait Challenge - September - October 2010 - Return of the Masters!



Finally managed to upload this, don't know what went wrong, this time an acrylic rendition of the child by Antonio Mancini, with apologies to Antonio. I'm not fond of this medium, I find when I've managed to mix a great colour it manages to form a film in double quick time, rendering the mix useless. Thanks everybody who commented on my work, much appreciated I've learnt a lot from this exercise.
Marianne, from the stormy, shaky NZ islands!
