    this is just outstanding!!!!!!!!! so amzing! thanks for including the close up on the eye so we can better appreciate your incredible artistry!…again im blown away!

  • So much detail is lost in the small view…I thought that a close up view might add to the understanding of what goes into texturing skin, eyes and hair using a stylus and tablet. Glad you appreciate that…xox

    Oh my god Helen-I am speechless.

    This is incredible!! Really. I am smiling ear to ear! Holy likeness!!!!!
    It is me-just with a bit more Glamour!!!! It Is really a joy to see me with longer eyelashes and lighter hair, and long nails!!! What fun!

    I have to laugh about the synchronicity of the nails…let me explain…throughout the school year when I am working I keep them short. Summertime is the only time I have them longer. I love having my nails longer but I just can’t maintain them. JUST TODAY I was lamenting how I will have to cut them soon because I will be going back to work. But no worries, for you have immortalized them in this portrait. HA!

    Well Helen, in closing-you work the tablet like no-one. Incredible style.
    thank you!

    Margot, I am so glad that you got a smile out of seeing what I have done to YOU! lol I had fun trying for a soft feminine look with choice of colour palette and those longer painted nails.. but…emphasising that intelligent and cheeky glint in your eyes! You are a good sport to allow your portrait to be painted…Cheers Helen xox

    Helen that’s what I find so amazing about this work of yours-you did capture this-to use your words- “intelligent and cheeky” part of my personality in this picture. It really is truly amazing..and a little bit surreal! :)

    she looks beautiful and you have made her look even more so.
    i love the shiny feel and touches of realness, especially those cheeks. ;-) xox

  • Oh good, I’m glad you saw the shiny feel and touches of realness, especially those cheeks. The small view loses detail…Thank you…xox
