Now I'm just gonna have to look at them all. Great sense of mythology you have; personal as well as historical. There's a wonderful 'wholeness' to your work. The feeling they are part of your world really comes through. I'm gobsmacked! Bravo!

. . . at these pieces, the whole gallery really, over and over again. I can't stand it; It's just too wonderful. These pieces are more real than any photo could ever be. Sometimes, I think that if I watch long enough, they just might take a breath.

Oh, this is such a lovely combo of idealized realism and byzantine pattern. . . it reminds me of Klimt and whistler. I LOVE that dress! And what a gorgeous Nell!

Ah, Nell, the seal of approval from my beautiful model, who could ask for more? thank you for making my day!

HeeHee! I absolutely love this, James. I am SO flattered you would do my portrait! Love the textures and how glowy the necklace looks the pattern on the dress! Actually, everything looks so glowy and alive! Ahh, it's just beautiful! And I love how effortlessly you have incorporated the arms and the fleece...It is certainly an honour to be portrayed as Medea by you!!! Smile THANK YOU!

this portrait is so great that even I can want you to make my portrait:) her eyes, her hair, the whiteness of her skin seem so real that at first sight it's hard to realise that it's just a portrait. I also liked the neckless and the dress.Shortly, this picture is wonderful.

And once again thank you, Uwe, always a pleasure to get your sign of approval

Ah Simon (need another pic ha can't top Rita!) thank you so much my friend!

somerset's picture

Well I gotta admit that the model really makes the picture...and in this case the model almost painted herself onto the paper....so inspiring!

Thank you, Joanna, I think the watercolour pencils give me a great advantage with textures, well sharpened cross hatching for skin tones as well as wetting the tips to get more intense colour

Thanks, Tom, she is a stunner aint she!

Guest's picture

Great portrait, the hair and the skin are especially good

abranda's picture

Ooh, so pretty. You're skin tones are just amazing! And I love her hair. Nice work James.

Wonderful, James! Your talent in putting together so many different textures( i.e dewy skin, sparkling metal, embroidered dress...) always amazes me, especially as you only use the one medium to achieve all these contrasts!

Very nice James, I really like how you handled the fleece, and some great detail work with the dress design, Nell seems to fit the part very well..cool work pal...

Art at its best.
