Re: Portaits

Nagel - interesting portrait,, good work….love the way the purple lingers after I’ve looked at the portrait…….and the piece is so balanced I MUST view it as a whole….nice…nice Icy blue eskimo…..great portrial of the facial features, that is not easy, but you got it.

Brian- hey, I like this because it looks like a still pose but there is inner movement some how….and very interesting unusual emotion.l. Like What is he looking at???
Oh, I like the thin lines with the smudgies. you captured the delicacy of the face nicely with this techinique

Yep, what you guys said about accuracy……art is not for critics………art is for appreciation…

June - very nice go…..really got nice shading on the bonnet ruffel and then presence of the light and heat. good sensitivity to the body language and…hey, this is great stuff!!!!

Re: Portaits

Another month on portraits is good!

Robin I love your expressionist handling of the mother and child. A great reference photo to work from.

I may add a few layers to my pink hat girl...

Actually, I'd prefer to redo her in a rainbow of colour. We'll see.

Re: Portaits

Have to add, I got a simple book on anatomy because I had problems with the child's neck area. The book didn't help, but I think I'm nearer a solution.

The book will no doubt be handy for more realism in portraits and figures. Even if I do the colour expressionistically/abstractly in future.

Re: Portaits

Hi everybody. I painted this tiny 12x9 from life two days ago. It took me around 2,5 hours.

Got his right eye a bit high I think, or his left a little too low/large? Angles and me are like oil and water lol!

Re: Portaits

I love this intimate portrait of the bearded guy, Raini. Beautiful textures in his beard and the wrinkles of his skin. He has lovely smiling eyes. You have a wonderful way with OPs.

Re: Portaits

Thanks June, I still struggle with blending...it's so easy to turn to mud! The reference photo was cyanatope? I think as he was blue/green skin tone. Here is the original

Re: Portaits

Here's my update on my version child in pink hat using layering with alkyd oils.



I took the photo in poor light..but its very wintry here at the moment.

I won't do any more to it I reckon. As an exercise in layering, it was good to experiment with a limited palette...3 colours. Vermillion, cerulean, yellow ochre plus white.
