Fabulous portrait.

Exceptional portrait Marilyn....bravo!

Cara Marilyn, sono lusingato ed onorato per questo straordinario ritratto che è più eloquente della foto stessa dalla quale è tratto. La somiglianza è eccezionale e direi che non hai trascurato nessun particolare, neppure un pelo della barba o delle sopracciglia. Ogni volta che vedo un tuo ritratto sono sorpreso dalla tua abilità e dalla straordinaria pazienza nel riprodurre con tale accuratezza i dettagli. E' come se mi osservassi allo specchio ma è stupefacente pensare che si tratta di un acquerello, è quasi inquietante vedermi riprodotto con tale perfezione. Conosco pochi acquarellisti che sono in grado di raggiungere tali livelli di perfezione, e quelli che conosco io sono tutti maestri cinesi, che sono secondo me i più raffinati ritrattisti. Ti rinnovo i miei più calorosi complimenti e ti chiedo il permesso di metterlo col tuo nome sul mio profilo facebook. Grazie ancora, Marilyn, di questo bellissimo regalo. Sei un'artista grande e generosa.

marvellous!

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments! Your encouragement is really appreciated.

Oh, now that is really impressive Marylin. Class work and hat off to you.

Excellent portrait

Yet another great portrait.

That's excellent, Marilyn... I don't speak Italian, but I guess from the length of Cesare's comment that he likes his portrait!

Dear Marilyn, I am flattered and honored for this extraordinary portrait that is more eloquent than the photo from which it is drawn. The resemblance is exceptional and I would say that you have not neglected any details, even a coat of beard or eyebrows. Every time I see your portrait I'm surprised by your ability and extraordinary patience to reproduce the details with such accuracy. It's like looking at the mirror but it's amazing to think it's a watercolor, it's almost disturbing to see me reproduced with such perfection. I know a few aquarists who are able to achieve such levels of perfection, and those I know are all Chinese masters, who I think are the finest portraitists. I renew your most warm congratulations and I ask you permission to put it with your name on my facebook profile. Thank you again, Marilyn, for this beautiful gift. You are a great and generous artist. Posted by Cesare Romano on Tue 28 Nov 21: 2

I did Google translate with Cesares comment Marilyns onderful portrait.

Wonderful portrait of a wonderful artist. Special thanks to Sylvia for translating Cesare's comment, I'm afraid I don't speak Italian either so was very happy to know what Cesare had said.

Come probabilmente sapete Cesare, ho risposto ai vostri commenti su PMP, ma ancora una volta vorrei ringraziarvi per il vostro incoraggiamento per il mio lavoro e sono onorato che lo stiate mettendo sulla vostra pagina Facebook.

I went to Birmingham Art School straight after leaving school but had not considered my job prospects carefully enough at that age so left and did not consider taking up art again until much later in life. Now that I am retired I have much more time on my hands to paint and hope my artwork brings…
