Beautiful colours and an amazing finish for soft pastels Carole, I thought it was oil!

Lovely bold colours, dear Carole and love the material's textures! peace & love; God bless, Andy 😊❤️

Great portrait, Carole - the eyes are very expressive... I really like the colours too.

Wow - A really strong portrait Carole. Bold use of colour- really effective.

I feel you have portrayed a gentleness of character Carole. Lovely.

Great work Carole, love the colours and flesh tones, the light and texture of the cap is fabulous.

I think It's a great attempt. Love the colours. I find portraits really difficult. You have done a great job.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support Katy, Christine, Andrew, Jan, Shaun, Diane, Russell, Natalja and Denise.

Good one Carole

Really striking image, Carole, love it!

Many thanks Heather, Lesley and Thalia for your positive comments, which are very much appreciated.🌈🌈

You have caught something of his good charter Carole. The background compliments his warmth as well.

Beautiful skin tones Carole

Lovely, Carole! I haven't painted yet a single Portrait! I think I simply can't!! :-(

I love the warm vibrancy. Great eye contact too.
