A fabulous portrait. The colors are rich, the face wonderful, and the details of her gown are splendid. I love the glowing tones of her skin. Possibly my favorite in your entire beautiful gallery.

Thank you, guest. I agree with a shadow but the actual painting has it. The photo doesn´t show it. I should have made it stronger.

Very nice Vera! I'm glad that you're using models--the quality of the painting is lovely! I think that a shadow cast on her skin by the necklace would add dimension to it. You've really captured her hair! I love it!

Thank you Anneke. Your words are always so nice to me. I used a special mixture to paint the hair so came this glow. The actual canvass is more impressing.

What a beautiful warm colours you have given this elf lady. The hair is marvellous, very realistically drawn, with a wonderful glow on it.

Thank you Socar, Cynthia and Santiago. I am very happy you guys came to visit my gallery. I can only say I worked very hard on "Portrait" and I hope it will be a turning point in my art. I will try even harder to be a real painter!

Yes, those gray eyes are hypnotic, they contrast with the warmer colours of the face and hair. Beautiful hair, by the way Smile

How elegant! This is really beautiful--the colours work wonderfully, and that penetrating gaze...wow!

Guest's picture

She's lovely Lucia! Those beautiful grey eyes gazing out from all that warm color is riveting. You've done a wonderful job!

Thank you, james. It is an honour to have artists as you and Dan commenting my work.

Thank you, Dan. I am really touched to see this work here. I worked very hard in it. I would love to use models but, you know, it is not easy to find somebody who looks like otherworldly.

Great portrait! Vera. The colors are wonderful!

WOW! This portrait is fantastic! You should use models as much as possible. In my opinion, this is your best work by far. Her eyes are extremely beautiful. Great work, Vera!

Art at its best.
