Not happy with the finished item, highlights on cheek not right but pleased with on the face profile. The bright light in the window and the colour of the drape helped a lot

You did well Derek, the orange cover really adds to it.

I love this Derek superb painting from an intensive day

Must have been great to work with professionals Derek! You have done ever so well here and because it's oil you can go back to it if you're not entirely happy. Lovely choice of colours.

Thanks Carole, dennis and Satu. It was an intensive week certainly. An artist who posts in POL organised it, she is very well connected. Tom Coates was supposed to be there but was ill.

Excellent pose. I like the feel and the use of colours. As Satu says ....

Thank you Gudrun

Great skin tones Derek.

I think this has worked very well, Derek. the play of light on the figure and the material behind her makes the painting glow. Sounds like an interesting week with a lot learned by the look of it.

Thanks Thea, yes it was interesting and a steep learning curve.

I would be very happy with this Derek. I agree with Carole about the orange cover. Lovely.

Great work Derek really like it very much.

A stunning piece, Derek! Lovely use of warm and cool hues and great depiction of light.

Thank you Seok, quite a battle realy with many of the pros doing the same pose.

Great use of colour and lovely profile.

About the Artist

Eleventyeight as my hashing pals called my new age recently, it's supposed to sound better. Trying to paint every day in acrylics using only expired credit/debit cards, and partially succeeding as they're only for me and not show these days.
