Great portrait Christine, particularly the glasses and reflections. Love how you have caught her more serious side.

Really good Christine. If I may add the only thing that jars with me a bit is the lack of face through her glasses on her rhs, there's an indentation which isn't quite right and you can see the arm of her glasses that you shouldn't be able to see perhaps?

Thank you for your kind comments. Heather- The indentation on her right hand side is because of the strength of her glasses which made the distortion- I know it looks a bit strange but happened when she turned her head!

Very good. Glasses are difficult, especially if they are of a strong prescription!

Really good portrait - I looked at this on Sky Arts tv and thought how difficult the reflections on the glasses would be - well done.

Many thanks for all your kind comments.

Yes, this strange distortion due to strong glasses makes this special. Well done Christine

Tremendous work Christine I really like the hair but more importantly she is instantly recognisable

Wonderful capture of the 3D real life essence. Nice one.

Lovely portrait

Oti Mabuse on PAOTW and I decided to have a go- caught her on a more serious moment and the light in the glasses was challenging but enjoyed it. A3 Canson mi teintes touch, pastels and pastel pencils.
