Awwwwww how beautiful Tahja! I love the way you use your colours, so soft and delicate that looks like pastel! just lovely! to my fave!
It was a bit tricky getting the very subtle skin tones to work really well when the photo was already so beautiful on it’s own. I’m so pleased it turned out so well. Thank you so much for the warm support and fav. Hugs
Beautiful rendering Tahnja I love the texture and colors!
Hey there dear friend! As much as I still love limited palette work there’s something powerful about full colour isn’t there? Thank you so much for your warm appreciation…hugs
So sweet, innocent, and beautiful. Gorgeous work, Tahnja. Chris must be bowled over.
Hey Frannie! I see you made the images at the workplace post larger? thank you so much! You can see the detail so much better which is important to me. I’m so glad you encouraged me to take part in this…I’m so happy with the result of this painting and as tricky as it was doing justice to Chris’ wonderful photo, it was a little nerve-wracking as well making sure those skin tones were right. Thank you again! and yeah, Chris is utterly awestruck she said. Wow, how’s that for a thumbs up? lol
Beautiful work!! I loved watching your WIP shots
Hi Dianne! Thank you so much….it just goes to show you how much a painting changes during the process doesn’t it? When people walk in when I’m half way through a work they nit pick and tell me this and that’s wrong with it and I tell them to leave the work alone until I’m finished and then tell me if there’s something wrong with it. Usually there isn’t lol…..Thank you for the appreciation!
I’m just so delighted with your painting Tahnja, it’s way beyond beautiful! Your colours, light and clarity, the luminosity – all superb! Thank you so much for choosing to paint “Sunshine and Light” :)xox
Thank you so much Chris for allowing me to paint from your photo which was such a joy to paint from. I’m utterly thrilled at your approval and the wonderful comments you have made about my painting and technique. The reaction to this painting is also quite thrilling.
Absolutely gorgeous work, Tahnja. Wonderful texture,beautiful child.

Hi Anthea! I’ve been so hard at work on several paintings and was a bit worried I might rush this one too much but in the end, it turned out really well and I’m very pleased with the result.
I’m also very happy with the reaction this painting is receiving…it’s wonderful to know it’s so appreciated. And so many people recognise my style which is a much welcomed response too.
Oh This is GORGEOUS!!!!!!
