It is breathtaking in this photo--I can't imagine just how beautiful she must be in person. The contrasting shadow and light is awesome.
She looks wonderful, John!
Oh dear John ... You have a lot of skills!Now You must learn how to take right photos of your wonderful work!
Hang on wall. Use tripod. But photographic input aside, nice work! I missed a few! I'm glad to see you're back.
She is stunning - your portraits are all so fantastic ! Thank you for visiting me earlier!Happy November!oxoSusi
Your work is so very fine. You are a truly accomplished artist. I love how alive and expressive your portraits are. A bad photograph just deadens the subject, but a portrait makes them forever living and vital. I am honoured that you left a comment on my little triptych featured on my blog. x
Very nice painting!
I know just what you mean about the photo John, sometimes we just can't get an accurate photo of our work, usually because of reflected light which I think is the case with this one. That said, I can imagine just how good this painting really is and I'm amazed at it's relatively small size. The accuracy of detail you've achieved is what I would normally expect to see on a much larger canvas. Great work as always.
Beautiful and soulful portrait!
