Thanks Mel:) I need to get a better quality copy of it though
– Valerie Simms
i would love to see the original, but you are too far away or I am. I have been staring at her for about three minutes, suddenly jolted back here by the sound of the whistling kettle. I agree that, for you, perhaps better quality copies may work but for me, just as she is. I get a sensuality, a softness, a woman in fact. Quite stunning. Thank you, and to Melanie for showing
Thankyou for taking the time to look
beautiful brush work , love the mood you have created
The eyes. Put simply – it’s the eyes. Wow.
Thankyou so much :)
Your first oil???? Come on now! Too darn good.
i dabbled many years ago but found the drying time frustrating. Pastels are so instant but i can’t always achieve the sense of drama i would like so my partner treated me to a set of oils a couple of months ago and with a bit of patience I think i’ll probably me using them much more
well, cool, good luck!
unusual media from you … you got it !
Brilliant work, Valerie!! Hard to believe this is your first oil painting – Sign of great things to come from you with this medium ;) ☺
