Fabulous portrait catherine

I'm usually a little hesitant to comment on portraits and figure paintings as I have very little experience with regard to them, but I really like this piece. The composition and pose is excellent, and there's so much personality and vitality in the piece. Superb work.

I agree this is excellent Catherine, love the casualness of her pose and you have caught that perfectly here in your oil portrait of her

A fine addition to your excellent gallery.

This is a beautiful portrait Catherine, no need to say anything else! I've just seen your wonderful 'gallery' and it's inspired me to 'have a go' at painting a portrait with water colour - very scary!

David, so glad you are inspired to have a go with watercolour portraits! I'm sure you'll soon love them! Many thanks for all the lovely comments.
