What an emotive portrait. You imply a life story with this work and your use of tone is very impressive. Great work.

Thank you everyone - my challenge is to try and stop being so detailed - so this was a breakaway in terms of both approach and tone

Very cleverly done Heather especially with that headline top right.

Admire this very much, the detail with freedom of expression.

I really like this effect. Great idea. A fun experiment in mixed media and collage!

This is wonderful, I love the layers peeping through!

Brilliant 'headline' for this one. It looks like your husband?

Absolutely brilliant Heather.

This image works really well.

Nice Work

This is lovely! the newspaper really adds to the grittiness of the image. I know only too well how it feels to try to reduce the detail - so easy to get caught up in the little things and lose sight of the whole picture.

A very creative artistic concept !

This is so different Heather with just a suggestion of the face, a very successful piece.

Thank you for your comments on my Gallery they certainly helped with my motivation. I do not paint many portraits myself but appreciate the skill needed to paint these. This one in your galley I particularly loved its has a feeling of connection

Love this. Can’t stop staring at it!

LOVE THIS WORK, YOUR PORTRAITS ARE OUTSTANDING......

Wow I love this! Very creative way to do a portrait.

Great work Heather... I was drawn to this painting instantly
