My son, Andy.

Brilliant first oil Dawn. Wish you could tell us the joke :))

It’s great, just keep doing oils Dawn.

This is an absolutely great first oil portrait Dawn. Andy's eyes look wonderful (and so does the rest of him!). Well done!!

Thank you Carole, John and Margaret. I dread to think what he was saying, Carole. He is a Royal Marine and can be quite naughty.

What a fabulous first oil painting, Dawn.

Yes I can see the cheeky grin;)

He looks great fun Dawn. This has turned out really well. I must have been on a "sabbatical" when you posted this!😐

Thanks, Adele. I really enjoyed doing this.

My first portrait in oils. Water-mixable oils on canvas. I started with a bistre underpainting and then lots of glazes on top. My daughter-in-law told me Andy had just told a naughty joke when the ref photo was taken!

About the Artist
Dawn Halliwell

I started painting in Jan 2016 after the death of my youngest sister. I found it great therapy and still do! I love experimenting with different techniques and media. This year, I have set myself a challenge of working on my portrait skills, but I do love to paint animals and landscapes…
