A beautiful portrait with a lot of soul ... no doubt your current situation came through when painting this. so sorry to hear about your father Dawn.

It's wonderful Dawn. It draws me in and the eyes are very soulful.

Thank you Heather and Anna. My mum says she looks sad. I think she looks lost in her own world .

Sorry to hear about your father Dawn and hope your painting can console you a little. This is very moving with depth and a heartfelt Expression. Your use of mixed mediums has been very successful.

Thank you Carole. I lost myself in this one.

Really lovely work Dawn and even more poignant after reading of your Dad's dreadful news, take care.

A beautiful portrait Dawn.

After a dreadful week,my dad has been diagnosed with terminal cancer, I needed something beautiful to focus on. Annabel is a friend's daughter. The ref photo was taken some years ago. She is now a dancer at the Paris Lido. Mixed media, mostly inktense and watercolour with a bit of pen and acrylic thrown in.
