WOW, it's huge, well done! Valerie
Wow is my reaction too! Fabulous portrait, his eyes and mouth... beautiful!
Thanks, Judy - yes I was pleased with the mouth, always a troublesome feature
Wow! Large and looking nice too!
Thank you, Catharina, I haven't seen any of your work since that lovely 'ginger' cat
Fabulous, superb...you are like a fine wine....getting better with age!(Told you the mouth was right)
Thank you, Madam, I'm only a boy yet!(So you did ... just needed to adjust the shadows)
I missed your last post but I just scrolled down to have a look. Great job John!! He is going to be made up when he sees it! And you are right, seeing it like this gives a sense of its size. I like working large too... only I think after the on I'm doing right now, the next one will have to be looser or I'll go crazy with all the detail!
Thanks, Sandra; he's got the perfect colouring and looks for portraiture. I thrive on detail, but I know what you mean: a change is as good as a rest.
