Still practising

Still practising

Like you colour selection Marjorie, it has a sense of atmosphere.

As a practise session,all looks really good. Still working with the water soluble oils ? Takes some getting used to, I found straight from the tube difficult, so now use both water sol. Linseed and stand oil, both have helped. Anyway your results are already looking very good.

Thanks both. Yes, still using the water soluble. I've got a special medium too. Apart from spilling some all over my paint tubes, haven't used it much. My oils are Cobra, quite malleable.

Lovely Marjorie. I really like the colours.

You have got a beautiful light in it!

Agree with all Marjorie a great feeling and mood a gem of a Painting

Really good Majorie I love colour choices

Looks as if the practice is paying off, a lovely painting

Practicing is a good thing, it can lead to some great and unexpected results.

Lovely portrait, Marjorie.

This has a beautiful warmth Marjorie, the skin tones are lovely.

Thankyou all for those lovely comments.

Your colours are working very well indeed. I also like the painting. Great composition.
