After visiting the Archibald Prize exhibition today, I was inspired to try and re-paint the first portrait I ever painted back in 2009. This is the result.African girl painted in acrylics on 10″ × 10″ stretched canvas.

2 DAY 2011/07/19This is stunning Lynda, well done!
I don’t know what the original was like but this profile portrait is a real beauty. The white clothing against the white background really allows the colour and texture of the skin to sing out. Very successful in all respects. Superb.
Thankyou so much for your kind comments Robert. I’m glad you like her. When I put the two paintings side by side it was pleasing to see how much I have learnt just by “playing” over the past few years. :-)
Looks great ;)
Thanks so much :-)
