Unbelievable for a very first attempt! I am so impressed by the looseness of your brushwork and the soft edges you have achieved. You are well on y our way, John!
Thank you, Susan
Congratulations John on this beautiful portrait.! I love her expression ... I hope you paint more of these....love it.!!!
Thanks Hilda, i shall be giving it my best shot
I recognize Mrs. Zorn. You did a wonderful job! Can't wait to see what you do next. Zorn's limited palette is fantastic. I learned about it too and I think every artist should try it.
Thanks Celeste. Mr Zorn is the next ... bright orange jacket and all...!
John, it really is brilliant work. You should be so pleased.
Thanks Sherry, glad you liked it
John, very wonderful, yes congratulations. You did a fantastic job using Zorn's palette. Please do more portraits. You are an amazing artist.
I shall pursue Zorn until something moves me on.
Susan is right. Unbelievable for a first attempt. One would guess this was the work of a master painter. Great job. Keep those brushes flying.
Flattery indeed from such a great portrait painter as you, Linda
John. I've seen your work in The Sistine Chapel and I think this Portrait is as good.Well done, O good and faithful Servant.
System manager...yes... Sistine Chapel ...'er ...no!l Keep up the good fight, Z
A portrait emotionally intense. The palette of Zorn in your skilled hands seems to transcend time passing, from reality to the feeling, naturally masterful.
Thank you, Rita
Really VERY good even if it hadn't been the first one , and such a difficult angle, bravo !
Thank you Jane, very kind of you to say so
Wonderful portrait, John! I love her pose. Great job!
