Re: The Portrait Gallery, July, 2005

Here's a quick update. Last night I spent my time on layout more than drawing. Think I got it figured out now.

Peace,
AL

Jaysen, the Portrait of your wife is very well rendered. I like the way her hair falls over her shoulder, and is she wearing a diamond necklace? -- it could well be taken for diamonds.

Jan, very nice work indeed, but I like "Hilde" even more. I reckon "Hilde" is worthy of being hung in any gallery anywhere in the world.

Re: The Portrait Gallery, July, 2005

Hi guys. this is the latest picture that i've been working on. Please excuse the bad scan - alot of the detail dosn't show and it all looks a bit fuzzy, but you can get the general idea.
The picture is done with graphite for the skin, and charcoal for the hair, dress and a few other areas. Size is roughly 18x12

Re: The Portrait Gallery, July, 2005

Hi Archaic,

This is really brilliant, as I have mentioned before, but I am sorry that I led you up the garden path. I haven't been well, and have been in hospital for a couple of days this month and didn't realise that I hadn't changed The Portrait Gallery URL from July to August in my Signature line.

Could you Copy and Paste this post into the following URL, and then you will be in the August Portrait Gallery. I am so sorry.

Thanks, Val.
