The Juggler

The Juggler

Those leather balls look so real.

Thank you Peter, the colour and highlights on the juggling balls really appealed to me as a painting subject....still can't juggle though! :)

This is great Andrea, love the expressive hands, beautifully painted!

Thank you for your great compliment Suzanne :) My aim was to paint the juggling balls In a realistic way, the hands expressive and the jumper more impressionistic...if this makes sense! So your comments (and Peter's) are very much appreciated!!

Love this! So realistic. I had to look twice as I thought it was a photograph. Beautiful.

Thank you Yvette :) I think that when a bigger painting is reduced down to this size it makes it look more 'realistic' than it really is....but I will very happily take your compliment and run with it!! Thank you so much for taking the time to post this comment :)

Fantastic Andrea, the leather balls brilliant.

Thanks Carole 😀 Really kind of you 😀

Brilliantly painted Andrea!

Thanks for your great compliment Russell! :)

Something very dramatic and lively in this piece that really holds the viewer's attention, Andrea. Well done!

Thanks for your compliment Seok. Glad you like it! (Your comments are always such a joy to read throughout the gallery!) Happy Painting! :) :)
