What a striking portrait Frank.

Lovely portrait Frank.

Colours are definitely great together and have produced a v nice portrait indeed

A fine sketch, Frank. I keep coming across the Arteza range of mediums, I'll have to have a look at the gel pens.

Inspiring Frank.

A lovely sketch Frank, the pen work gives the portrait a sense of life. Good colour harmony too.

A very beautiful sketch of a lovely lady. The colours are so harmonious and I love her majestic pose Frank.

Thanks everyone for commenting. Worth a try Lewis, I also have some oil markers to try out as well. Carole, she is a very stylish and sophisticated lady.

Great portrait, Frank, delicate but strong.

Thanks Michael and Willie, I almost left her scarfe pattern plain because it looked very intricate, but glad I persevered as it adds depth and interest.

Gorgeous work

I really like this. Interesting way you have used the colours.

Wow - I love the sparseness of this - it leaves spaces for the imagination to fill. Sometimes what you don’t add is just as important as what you do. Genius.

Hang on Studio Wall

I bought a set of vintage gel pens from Arteza and this is the first time using them. I think the colours work fairly well together. Entry in my A4 sketchbook.
