A famous Italian lady!


Beautifully painted Peter. Love the colours you have used.

Good for you Peter. I know the problem with painting hands. They are so difficult. Nice take on the lady all the same.

One hand was quite enough!

You have painted one hand really well. Her chin has skewed off to the left of the picture a bit. As a seasoned portrait artist, I would suggest that you concentrate on practicing drawing portraits, before painting them.

Well, if you're going to copy something you may as well begin at the top! She is holding a handkerchief because I couldn't paint her hand.

I am currently a professional model maker but am winding down with a view to retiring this year, giving me more time for painting. My art website is www.pjspaintings.net if you would like to have a look.
