Re: Portrait Gallery - August September 2012

Hi Bethany..literally painting with coffee...saw some really beautiful portraits painted with it...i got into a mess..slow and laborious..couldn't get the darks dark and the lights got washed over accidently with the coffee. Not keen on watercolour either as i don't seem to be able to control that either!

Re: Portrait Gallery - August September 2012

Hello Everyone - been nearly a year since I last stopped by.. how time flies Been looking through this thread and it is lovely to see the great works as well as some new talented blood!
I haven't had any time to paint at all this year really... except this is the time of year I get some commissions to do = bit commercial but was a great excuse to see if I remembered how to paint at all!

This one is finished and is a comemorative piece, 1m x70 cm on Linen - taken from a photo just 1x1.5 inches EEK! But I thought her character demanded an impact piece!



THis one is a work in progress 65x 55 cm linen of two sisters



Enjoy your painting!!

Re: Portrait Gallery - August September 2012

Hi Jeni- good to see you back here and showing your beautiful portraits!

Very nice start to this, Annemarie- although it looks great as is- I see no improvements needed!

Rubia, great as always!
Well, I have a finished portrait of my two grands: Olivia and Kate. Before I take it to be framed I would like some comments. Thank you.
Moe

Re: Portrait Gallery - August September 2012

Annemarie -- lovely work from you, as always. Plus, I enjoy seeing how you keep on tweeking your portraits -- very brave of you to make so many changes.

Dave -- I really like your limited palette on this portrait. Great mood!

Moe -- welcome to our portrait gallery. A sweet and well-done portrait!

KG -- those portraits are both stunning! Wow! Please post more of your work here!
