Portrait 4

Het is zo moeilijk om op tijd te stoppen. De verleiding om nog een lijntje te schilderen is enorm! Dus ik heb mezelf streng toegesproken en geroepen: stop, stop nu! :) Ik hoop dat het gelukt is.
Dit is een Palestijns meisje, van een foto die al jaren wachtte om geschilderd te worden.

It is so hard to stop in time. The temptation to paint another line is huge! So I have been very strict to myself and shouted: stop, stop now! :) I hope I succeeded.
This is a Palestinian girl, from a photo that had been waiting for years to be painted.

You are right to stop. This portrait is very effective, less is more for sure.

Polly Birchall zei

Your portrait is so clever, as w/c is the hardest medium, I think, for portraits. I am fascinated by your brushstrokes and skin tone.

Jane zei

Great shadowing and wonderful and sweet expression in the eyes .

Sandra Busby zei

It's lovely Judy! Portraits are tricky to do, but I do enjoy doing them myself too :0)

Irina Rekhviashvili zei

The portrait is so nervous, I mean emotions and sight in the eyes of the girl, great work.
I never can stop in time. In watercolor, too.

Debbie Nolan zei

Dear Judy - wonderful portrait...you certainly captured her personality in the eyes and the smile. Hope you have a great day. Loved your wild roses from the previous post too.

Another brilliant portrait Judy. Under worked, understated in a masterful fashion. Superb!!!

Lisa Le Quelenec zei

Your portrait series beautiful. It's hard to do portraiture but in watercolour it is definitely a challenge. Great stuff!

I like the ease of stroke and those fused with water and color that characterize your work.

Rita Vaselli zei

When I was studying creative writing, the major work of the teacher was directed to restrict the use of words.
Also in the painting is so. The teachers say do not use two brush strokes where one will do .... easy to say, hard to do. But you were really good at keeping the commitment and the result is perfect!


Good decision and re ally good risulta judy .


Result ! Beautiful fresh roses

Complimenti Judy, questo ritratto è davvero splendido. Magnifica l'espressione piena di vita di questa ragazza palestinese. Un abbraccio.

beautiful portrait.

Hanneke zei

Hey Judy, ik lees altijd eerst de voorgaande commentaren en was erg getroffen door Rita (so true!!!) De ogen zijn in vergelijking met de rest van je prachtige portret wat hard uitgevallen, is ook het moeilijkste onderdeel van het portret vind ik zelf. Blijf ze alsjeblieft maken, ik geniet er erg van, groetjes
