Oil Portrait Tutorial Part 2

A stunning portrait Jan.

Thank you, Margaret and Fiona!

Amazing portrait, Jan, very beautiful!

Thank you, Cesare, for the kind comment...

This is lovely however you did it. It's the result that counts -well done.

Thank you for your encouraging comments, Russell, Willie and Maureen...
