Dad - round 2 (detail)

Dad - round 2 (detail)

A masterful watercolour by any standards.

I agree with Robert: what a stunning portrait, a real masterpiece. Love his expression.

You should be very proud of this one Kim, it's superb!

I agree with Louise - super stunning portrait Kim. Do you have a book of your work Kim?

This is brilliant and, dare I say, much better than the last one - much more of a 'kim' portrait which we have got to know and love. If you set out to capture your Dad's whimsical expression and quirky character, then you have succeeded in spades. I just wish I had met him as he looks to have been a lot of fun. Bravo!

A lively characterful painting. And I think there's a little tinker lurking behind those glasses :) Smashing piece of work.

It's soooo hard to see what's there rather than what you think is there. So many assumptions... I've probably spent the equivalent of man-years looking at my father without really 'seeing' him. And now that's it's too late to make amends, perhaps painting a simple watercolour portrait has made me feel closer to him than ever before. Thanks for your praise - I'm very grateful (not sure about the 'tinker' reference mind you).

Excellent portrait Kim

Wonderful portrait. I liked the last one but this is much better.

Such character captured here Kim very good portrait.

A truly stunning piece, Kim! He certainly looks like he has a great sense of humor. And there's so much depth and richness in the deep shadows. Absolutely beautiful!

Beautiful portrait of your gentle looking dad Kim.

Superb as usual; such depth both in technique and spirit.

So much character and personality in this wonderful portrait.

What a wonderful portrait. I think your portraits are full of life. Also I have read the discussion about why we post work, and I think we all need to share our efforts with like-minded people. I have so enjoyed getting involved with this site.

Hang on Studio Wall

Racked by guilt after my first attempt, I've looked at my Dad again and tried to find more of his whimsical expression, half amused, half challenging.
