Post Pow wow -2 Jingle dance twins

Before I go blind tonight, I thought I would show you my second in the Pow Wow group.
I am just about 1/2 done and can't see and work in the morning, so I must stop.

<IMG SRC="http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/16-May-2001/pastel2twins.jpg" border=0>

Nobody ever ventures in to the other forums, but I started a work in progress over
in the pastel forum

I hope to work on it tomorrow...who knows, Maybe in the daylight!

Fantastic! Love the subtle variations in skin tones preserving likeness and light source... Be happy!

Beautiful painting Dj. I've started liking most of your paintings. Do your work on these from life?

These groupings are the first ones I have done from photos. The portraits are all from my open studios at the art school.
Since I took the photos it is a LITTLE more like life, but the experience is much different.
Some how I don't like photos as much, but it seems the results are turning out to be pretty rewarding. I may not have to leave the house again!?!?!
Thanks all.

This is one of my favourites of yours. I really like the skin tones and the colours you have used.

Not much more but I think it is done.
I will be printing up a set of notecards and a good print on good pastel or watercolor paper to package up as a gift for the models.

DJ , This one and the one with the ladies sitting, is really nice. It makes me think that maybe I should go back to pastel. Keep up the good work and you'll soon be rich and famous.

You are definately on track with this one. Looks wonderful and I can not see one thing that I would change about it.
