Your depiction of one of my all time favourite writers is wonderful Jovan. xo
Thank you Annie, I hadn’t done one of Oscar in awhile and I thought it was high time I did. I’m going through my Belle Époque phase again. : D

Wonderful portrait and quote. I actually see a bit of Gene Wilder in there too.
Lol! There is a touch of the Gene Wilder in this depiction. I used to love Gene Wilder especially in the original “The Producers” with Zero Mostel. What a classic! : D
I am also a dreamer like him (-:Beautiful art, my dearest gummy bear.
Count me in too Queenie, as Oscar Wilde used to say “we are in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars!”. : D
Beautiful work and words, xo
Thank you Anna. : D
Terrific piece. I like the obvious hash shading, color washes, and stylized vignette. The perfect quote.
Thank you Frannie, I wasn’t so refined with this, so my approached was looser and free. : D
A very fine work here; the expression is great. Love the limited palette where everything is drawn in black, and the only dabs or hues added are those of night and day.
Thank you Mui- Ling, I wanted to use a looser style and I like exploring the limited paletted where you need to be more careful with composition and weight.
nosegay?no all gay, but one hell of a writer and act,john, you did him justice as always
He loved his nosegays Walt! As I was saying to Annie, I haven’t depicted Oscar for awhile and I’m going through that Belle Époque stage again which is one of my favourite periods in Art History. : D
there is something quite earnest about your depiction of this important cultural and social figure great job John
Hence “the importance of being earnest!” Loui. Thank you my friend. : D
