...hard not to repeat the other observations George. They all reflect what I feel as well. The one thing I personally see that is incredible in this piece is the brush treatment on the flowers on the sweater. Absolutley outstanding seargent work.

GeorgeB says:

Stan-Believe it or not this was an attempt to practice on an floral which I'm now trying my hand at.

Victor says:

Only just caught up and viewed this one today. It is an arresting portrait which draws you in. Apart from the effective brush work the key to it working so well is the expression on the face and the vertical composition. Its all interesting.

SD Painter says:

This is a prize winner, You will get lots of attention on this one... Why? Well first is your use of color is as the English say "Spot on" The background has a splash of red that makes the red that is bright red flash drawing you into it. Now lets focus on the face. Wow what great detail! I love your handling of the eyes and mouth, great shading and highlights there and the blush is wonderfully applied on the face. You are a master painter my friend! Your handling of the reflections on the pants portrays silk and that is a very difficult medium to portray and you pulled it off!

This is wonderful! Since I am so new to the program, please explain "just add water and a small amount of texture". If that is a stupid question, please forgive my ignornace.

Posted 102 months ago

GeorgeB says:

Patti-First, you are always welcome to visit. "Just Add Water" can be found in the Blenders Brushes. It really soften most blemishes (skin). The Texture or Paper gives the image a little "Bit" to hold it togather. E-mail: gnbalthazar@hotmail.com
