Portrait...



Ik bewaar al een tijdje de omslagfoto's van mijn televisiegids om te gebruiken als referenties voor het oefenen van portretten. Ik vind het schilderen van portretten leuk, zolang als ze maar niet hoeven te lijken. Dit is de eerste van de serie. Ik zie dat de ogen te groot zijn, het is moeilijk om de ogen niet te veel te accentueren omdat de glamoureuze dames op de omslag allemaal een hoop make-up dragen. 

I have been saving the covers of my television guide for some time now to use them as reference for portrait practice. I love painting portraits, as long as they 
don't have to bear exact resemblance. This is the first of the series. I know the eyes are to big, it is hard not to over-accentuate the eyes since all those glamourous ladies on the cover wear a lot of make-up.

  1. Well done! Maybe eyes are big, but they are at the place and in tune with other features, lady from the cover will be happy! I am so proud of you, you practice the most difficult subject in most difficult media.

  7. If you wanted a phot likeness you can take a picture. A painting captures the essence of the person I think the eyes are most important being the mirror of the soul. You did well with this one,a good study.

  8. Judy, non so se questo è il tuo primo ritratto, ma certamente è un lavoro molto bello e ben riuscito. Non trovo gli occhi eccessivamente grandi e trovo invece che hai usato dei colori e dei toni belli e delicati. Complimenti!

  12. It is wonderful Judy! And yes, eyes are hard to draw when they are wearing a lot of make-up. And now even false eyelashes are back in fashion!! I think you have done a lovely job :0)

  20. Judy this is fabulous. Still so distinctly yours with your lovely loose style and colour choices. I think this is the first portrait I have seen of yours. Nice to see. The eyes are very striking and just right.

  21. I love to see how a portrait comes out in your delicate transparent style. I like very much the seeming simplicity with which you painted it. She has a lot of presence, her eyes sparkle. Beautiful work, Judy!

  22. Dear Judy - the colors and the freshness of this portrait is lovely. I would think eyes would be so difficult to do. I have never been very successful with portraits...may have to do some more practice. Yours turned out so beautiful. Have a great day.
