    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

    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
