My favourite jumper


Beautiful picture Michele 🙂

Thank you Stephen!

Fab Michele - I like it too!

Thank you Heather!

The is excellent and beautifully done Michael.

Thank you Dixie!

Super work with your pastels Michele.

Lovely work.

Terrific painting, and again I really like the use you've made of the paper texture.

Thank you everyone for your comments!

Delightful study - looking very like a friend of mine (named Jan) but I'm sure it isn't. Not an easy pose to capture, especially when you add the specs. I imagine the jumper took you as long to paint as it took to knit....

Thank you for your comment Robert - it’s definitely me and not Jan! Altogether the piece took about 4 - 5 hours

Interesting pose. Always very good Michele

I posted a drawing of a model on 11.Feb with almost identical pattern, Michele.

A good choice of values, and the background works well with the portrait. The hair is very realistic. Excellent work!

Superb pastel work! I like the jumper too
