Portrait





Hi,  We had a model Monday when I met with my group.  Actually this is my sister, I talked her into modeling for us and she did a great job.  This is oil on a 11 X 14 canvas panel.  Excuse the glare from the wet paint.

This is really fantastic Barbara. She is also very beautiful and you've got such a lovely softness to her face - so gentle.

Hi Liz, Thank you, thank you. I never had the chance to just stare at my sister for hours, it was a good experience. She is a beautiful woman, inside and out.

Dar Presto said...

wow, Barb. You painted this with confidence. She is beautiful. That must have been a nice experience for you both.

So glad you like it Bill. She is beautiful isn't she? So nice to have a model too.

Just stunning, the painting and the woman! Your portraits are getting better with each one you do.It seems that you are seeing the tonal differences clearer, which gives more structure and so, more solidity. Sorry, sounds like a sermon. I particularly like the Practice piece.
Lovely comment on my blog, thanks for that and your visit.
Happy painting!

Well, thank you Sharon. I haven't been doing portraits long but I like it so much. I appreciate your supportive words.

Irene Rencsi said...

Wow! She looks so much like you. I thought it was a self portrait until I read that it is your sister. Beautiful work, Barb!

Barbara Pask said...

Thank you Irene, you think she looks like me? What a nice complement.

You have a truly beautiful sister! and a magnificent portrait - bet she wants to keep this one!
It has been lovely catching up - I have been too busy of late to do any blogging!
