Zaina My Daughter


Beautiful portrait, Carole! Zaina Must be so happy to have such a Mom! Nicely painted… especially, I love the reflection in the eyes.

Carole, I like the cut off pose. It’s a lovely portrait.

What a beautiful painting of your evidently beautiful daughter, Carole! Her eyes are magnetic! I think lips are hard to do at that angle but you've got them well! And as always, the signature depth of colours! I could look at this all day! Fabulous, my friend; much love and God bless, Andy 🙂🙏❤️xx

Thank you so much for such a generous comment Manoj. Don’t know about Zaina being happy. Somehow we never seem to please our children. Thank you Marjorie. Sometimes we just have to paint a particular image that shouts out to us. You are a breath of fresh air Andrew and I bask in your very lovely comments of which I feel very honoured to receive from you.

A truly beautiful portrait. So we’ll painted!!!

I caught Zaina’s far away expression while She was walking along the beach and had to attempt to capture that moment. Was going to paint this in oils but decided on pastels, as I am a bit pushed for time these days. Pastel pencils and soft pastels on pastel paper. 12” x 16”
