    Yep, themes are fabulous, I should have thought of that as a suggestion, themed work in portraiture would sell better as well. Fantastic work

  • Thanks Tahnja but I must admit I’m doing stuff to fit frames I already have at the mo! not really the way to go I know but I’m broke and worried I won’t have enough work to show lol
    do be do be do…..panick is the word I’m looking for!

    You know what… “just gorgeous” doesn’t do it justice. This is so well executed, the soft shading, the subtle colours, perfect capturing of the expression, this is one of your best yet! I love it. I bet Tresa is chuffed!

  • Tresas not seen it yet I only finished it an hour or so ago :) but I’m sure she will like it

    There’s nothing wrong with working with what you already have dear friend. I rubbed back and painted over some earlier work that I hated so that I would not waste good canvases. They are too expensive to waste

    Excellent work Val. You get a real ‘softness’ about your shadow colours which is quite lovely.

    Your work is amazing, Valerie….I always expect to see a photograph when I see the thumbnail and I’m always blown away by your talent. Beautiful.
