Re: Portrait of Floor

Looks great, like all the paintings you posted before here.

You must have great drawing skills to get it done like that, I see no evidence of much corrections in paint.

Re: Portrait of Floor

Thank you Freesail and dustonpaper. I draw with my brush in one color before blocking in the colors. I make corrections as I go. My paint is never very thick because I'm finding it harder to correct then.

I should draw more from life though, I'm a bit lazy..

Re: Portrait of Floor

Very lovely, beautiful variation in the edges, there is a red patch on the nose that doesn't quite read, but that might be the photo.

Re: Portrait of Floor

Eevie, you've created a heavenly painting.

I agree with Rob--the red on the nose could be toned down a little.

Love your paintings, hope you answer Kevin's questions.
