On the beach revisited II

On the beach revisited II

For me, the drawing works better than the painting. I think it is that the upper lip in the drawing is so delicate and perfect, but it loses a little of this in the painting (which I understand as I have a lot of problems with mouths when I do portraits). The angle of the mouth is very difficult in the composition so hats off to you for tackling it so well. The overall portrait is charming.

I like the hair, really detailed and well drawn Sharon.

Thank you all for your feedback. Really helps me to perservere.

Your pencilwork is great, the picture beautiful.

Cropped version of “On the beach” : I first did a preparatory sketch for the shapes and values, before making the definitive drawing and painting. I like this a lot better than the watercolour version, somehow it portrays a childlike quality. Maybe I’ll just stick to pencil in the future.
