Eyes on the prize


The is stunning and beautifully done Michele I love the colours and the softness you have achieved.

Such a natural,wonderful, expression Micheal and I like the very soft way you have used the pastels.

Beautiful colours and the hands are really well observed. Great portrait

The realist might argue that the skin colours, especially the hands, are unnatural. So what? This is art not photography, and it all works wonderfully well.

What a stunning pastel - such interesting colours, you always produce first class work

Beautiful work

Many thanks Carole!

Thank you William the hands certainly were tricky!

Many thanks Tony!

A big WOW Michele!

Oh! this expression is fantastic, the soft pastel and captured spontaneously the sheer delight of munching and grasping the cream bun!

Hang on Studio Wall

Pastels on 20 x 26cm pastelmat. This was such a fun piece to work on with the soft focus elements offset against the gritty honesty of the dirty fingernails!
