Thank you Lucinda for allowing me to translate your wonderful image of The Chief of Boca Da Valeria for the Sojie 17 Portrait workshop.

The Chief of Boca Da Valeria
by Lucinda Walter

Pastel on Mitientes Tex paper – 23 × 35cm

Featured in
- New Creations of Art & photography – Oct 2012
- Women Painters – 28/10/13

I have recently moved to 2.5 acres at Bonny Hills on the NSW mid north coast from Sydney’s northern beaches. My favourite medium is pastel, and recently I’ve started using oils again. Other inspiration comes from holidays around Australia and overseas.
Original works are also for sale – please contact me by email if you are interested!

    Chief is looking good! I also like your alternative title, “Next in Line”. He has a very handsome face, and you show more of it. The warmth of the skin color is luxuriant, but his large eyes could melt one making eye contact. Well done, Terri!

  • Thank you Frannie – I really enjoyed painting him too! I think I will change the title as he is a bit young!

    Wonderful work Terri! Just because I waited for the completed image before commenting doesn’t mean I wasn’t watching your progress with this. The process was indeed a lesson in pastels itself. I think you are in the true spirit of the Sojie 17 portrait workshop. Congratulations as well as Great Work.

  • Thank you very much for your great comment Jim, I really appreciate it!
