Lulu, that is amazing. I am so impressed with the detail artists can get in watercolour, I have tried it but it always comes out looking like a child did it.

Re: Portrait Gallery - August September 2012

What amazing work from everyone... WOW!

This is what I've been working on for the last couple months (24"x24" - Acrylic on Canvas). It's from a photo of my son taken in front of a graffiti covered lighthouse. I loved the weird look on his face, the way his hands are clasped and the graffiti in the background.

Just a disclaimer: I traced the basic lines onto the canvas, so I can't take credit for the initial drawing. :P

I really tried to focus on edges this time. I'm not sure if I went too far on his arms though. Any C&C's are welcome. Thanks!

Very nicely done, CinDoc- the expression is beautifully captured. Love the contrast with the blue/red.

Beautiful rich colours, Andrew! (I have a stretched linen with this raw finish- makes me want to have a go...)
