Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

What a lovely thing to do Andrea .

Thank you so much for writing this Sylvia :- ) These two inspired me to pick up a paintbrush and give portraits ‘a go’ in the first place! Love them to pieces! (Still probably no chance of breakfast in bed today though!) :- )

A great idea, very lovely Andrea.

Thank you Carole :- ) Very kind of you! I have another portrait of my daughter as a wip at the moment which I hope to post soon. Hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend x

Marvelous work, Andrea. Love them all, especially the one of your son in front of the sweet shop.

Thanks for your lovely message Gudrun! Very much appreciated :- ) Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Thank you for your compliment Lewis! If you were interested, the Sweet shop one (complete version) can be seen in my portrait folder in my gallery on paintersonline here: http://www.painters-online.co.uk/gallery/art-view,picture_128459. It’s a coloured pencil artwork inspired by a family holiday to Florence and the beautifully displayed shops they have there. A bit of a challenge with all those sweets and jars, but I just loved his ‘shopped out’ expression! Have a great day! :- )

A really nice thoughtful idea beautifully put together Andrea. Enjoy the day.

Thanks so much Tessa :- ) You too! :- )

Simply stunning work

Thank you so much for your lovely compliment Thalia :- )

Thank you Margaret, so very kind! :- )

Hang on Studio Wall

These two have made me the person I am today ... a mother! Happy Mother’s Day! Portraits: my daughter and son from 2004 - 2017 in pastel; coloured pencil and acrylic paint.
