Hi Heather; he's a very good-looking chap; beautifully portrayed and shares a name with our own son! Love and God bless, Andy xx

Hi, I like all your work but this stood out, i am a sucker for contrasting backgrounds and i like the way you painted facial stubble and close cropped hair around ears etc.

I have to agree with the other artists, you have an aptitude for portraits. I agree with you about the mouth, a point made by JS Sargent," a portrait being a picture of a face where something is not quite right about the mouth". May I ask if these are from photographs or life. If the former then I would encourage you to home your skills directly from the model. Great work. Thank you too for your comments on my recent stillife.

Your portraits are fantastic Heather it is such a difficult discipline. You have a great future in art.

Yes another great piece Heather
