A lovely portrait Andrea

Thank you Russell, very kind of you :) Her portrait was very well received by the family too, which was very nice to know. Thanks for commenting Russell.

Just lovely Andrea. Well done.

Thank you Henry, that's very kind of you :)

Beautiful portrait much expressive, Andrea.

Thank you for taking the time to post this lovely compliment Cesare - it's much appreciated :)

What s wonderful portrait. Oozing with character. Diana

What a really lovely portrait and it has great sensitivity. All the beautiful colours you've used, I love them.

Thank you Diana, very kind of you, I was really relieved that the birthday girl liked it as much as her daughter (who had commissioned the painting) did. :)

Thank you Marjorie, I was given 3 photographs to work from, but chose this one because of the beautiful coloured top she was wearing. I had an aunt who loved to wear a red jacket, in a similar style, to family events and (to me) it became her trademark, along with a favourite broach or a special necklace. Initially I proposed a head and shoulders portrait but amended that later to include her watch and ring, in case some family members remembered Rose in a similar way.

Very lively, well posed and well executed, Andrea!

Thank you Seok! :) I knew this was you before I had even followed the link from the notification :) Beautifully written prose! :)

Very good.

Thank you Shirley :) that's really kind of you :)
