This portrait is superb and has captured a true expression of emotion. Steve.

You made a great job, Marilyn. You caught a great expression of innocence in this beautiful kind. Superb portrait.


It’s worked beautifully, Marilyn. You are a wonderful portrait painter.

Absolutely beautiful and captures her personality so well

Wonderful, especially like the eyes! Hope her mum is pleased- she should be!

This so good I don't know what to say, or how to comment, but I will say it's brilliant! Brian

Simply wonderful Marilyn, such a brilliant portrait, not easy with watercolour!

Thank you so much everyone for your lovely comments about my work - I really appreciate your encouragement!

Just seen this realistic Portrait, Marilyn, and what a terrific one it is! Your gallery is fantastic and full of wonderful work. "Wow" is the word I think describes it all!!!!

Thank you so much Stephen, Cesare, both Tony’s, Seth, Terence and John.

Thank you Thalia, Mike, Margaret and Jennifer.

it certainly works a beautiful painting
