Portrait 13


Lovely portrait, hope She Is not always so serious.

Excellent, really interested to see the progress on this. I've used Madder as well and it works for me too

She...Me. I find I concentrate so much on the painting that I forget to smile! ha ha!!

A "strong" portrait Fen with very interesting and wise usage of varying brushstrokes.

Really good portrait and interesting comments about some of the colours used. Love the hat!

Thank folks. Yes, the hat had a wonderful curving line o the brim.

Finally finished this thirteenth self portrait. It morphed as it progressed; each time I donned the hat aspects changed so the final pose shows the ear which was hidden in the initial 'sketch'. Used two new colours. Madder, a wonderful earthy red and secondly, Flesh tint. The latter ironically used for the background not the face! Measure 60 x 40cm. Oil on board.
