PortraitDay12


This portrait is of a young girl and while I like the drawing it is not quite as young as the photograph depicts. I will try again. I am posting it because I like it. I have done a few of them, but, not many and feel happy with the results of this one. I have a portrait of a young boy that I will post soon...it is an older one done a number of months ago.

Hi Linda,thanks for stopping by my blog. Your oil paintings are wonderful. Someday i would love to try oil... maybe when i retire:)
I will watch you paint and hopefully learn a thing or two.

I noticed in your profile that you like poetry. On my blog roll, which i am going to add you to, is a blog call sycronizing.. anyway she is a wonderful writer, photographer and poet. You may enjoy the blog,check it out.:)

Linda, this is a lovely drawing. I have great appreciation for what you are doing. All afternoon I've been trying to draw the lighter featured on the DPW Challenge. Great training for the eye!

Hi Linda.
It is a wonderful portrait. And your first one, It`s hard to believe that anybody can produce a good portrait like this for the first time. You have done extremely well Linda. All the best.
Vic.

Hi all...thank you for your comments!
Victor...No, its not my first one, I have done very few so far...I have probably done under 5 or 6. I am sorry if I misled anyone. I will need to change the way I worded that. Linda
