Day 19, Tim Mcgraw


How you ink the eyes is amazing Dawn. I suppose there’s a slight advantage in being laid up and unable to do anything else but art but I’m sure you would rather be getting on with life and hope you’re not in too much pain.😊😊

Great work superb texture in the hat hope you are well Dawn

Thank you Russell, Carole and Dennis. I used a metallic gel pen to get the texture on the hat, Dennis. It's the first time I used it ams I think it worked quite well xx

Another super portrait Dawn, but I haven’t a clue who Tom McGraw is! Lol

Thanks Fiona. He is a country and western singer. Not normally my choice but I'm widening my music taste as I paint these portraits!

Hang on Studio Wall

One of the things I'm loving about this challenge is listening to new music to find a subject to fit the prompt. Not usually a country girl, but quite liked the song, Truck Yeah.

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. I mainly work in pastel or oils for pet portraits, but I also enjoy doing ink portraits with the odd landscape thrown in for good…
