Great job for two days. I've never been able to do a portrait in only two days.

Re: Portrait Gallery -- May 2011

Larubia,

Oh my oh my goodness me... You just get better and better. You have surpassed the Pre-Raphelites. Trust you will tone down the blush as you work along. The blue surrounding the oval doesn't quite gel with the green surrounding the face, to my color sense, but I don't know exactly which one I would change or to what. This has stained glass window look. You are the master of painting hands.

Gary, especially like the one of Lee Van Cleef.

With a bit of help from Alexei Jawlensky.

Re: Portrait Gallery -- May 2011

Bert Ferguson, Builder

Bert is a neighbour of mine. He has an amiable almost bumbling style but is a clever and skilful craftsman builder much in demand locally. This is an oil sketch from a snapshot I took of him on a tea break.




larubia: A very well worked composition with a strong graphic sense.
bettythecat: Arresting pose and eyes. I will be interested to see how this develops.

Re: Portrait Gallery -- May 2011

Lawrence, Very Picasso (minus the extra eyes, haha). Love it a lot!!!!

123harry, Everything about Bert is wonderful, colors, composition, the yellow and shadow behind the head. Just so appealing.

A lot of lovely work on this thread!
