Sketch of North African Lady.


I like how you have done this really good portrait Denise , it’s excellent. The white highlights add so much, and it’s such a vast improvement on your previous portraits.

Well done Denise. An interesting portrait.

Fabulous commitment and productivity, hats off to you - a powerful face

Superb portrait, full contrasts & character.

A very likeable portrait!

Doing them often ( well all art really) is paying off. What a difference now to how your early portraits were, Denise.

Thanks very much Paul, Christine, Heather, Stephen, David and Marjorie. I know portraits aren't my thing but I still want to work towards producing something that's fair rather than a mess and I've started to enjoy it rather than dread it.

It is lovely to see your progress Denise.

Great portrait of an elegant lady, you have done well Denise.

It's a good portrait Denise, I do admire your drive and determination to improve your skills, an example to us all.

Wonderful strength of character displayed here Denise. Love your diversity and ability to have a go at everything.

I agree with Paul great highlights on this especially the one on her eye lid, they bring her face to life.

Thanks for your kind words Linda, Carole, Russell, Carole, Ellen, Val and Romila.

A lot of emotion in this painting well done

Thanks Moira.

If I see an interesting face, I'm going to try and do it as I know in order to get my portraits better, I have to actually do lot's of practice, so I plan to do a face that catches my eye, at least once a week, while I'm doing my other things. I might do two if I get chance. This is done in charcoal.
