This is Awesome!!!
Thanks for Feedback LostBoy1.
I really like this Anthea.The shadows really accentuate the mood.
This is many times more powerful than a photograph. So much can be read on his face expression and in his eyes it’s mind boggling. Really, really impressed. How do you do this Anthea?
I couldn’t make the connection to the title yet, but this is what makes the art art.
And still the wheel turns living or partly living… is a statement by T.S. Elliot – the English Poet and this is a portrait of him. Thank you iCandor for your thoughtful feedback. With my portraits I try to capture the essence of the person I am painting by learning about their internal workings through their poetry, art, photos and anything I can find to learn more about their inner thoughts and feelings. Bringing what is inside us to the outside and evoking that emotional state is what I hope to achieve with my portraits.
Is this water colours? a very difficult medium to tame…which you have!
It is black ink LostBoy. But I have used water with the ink to create a water colour effect. Thanks for comments.
i love this too…
Brilliant, well done. Great work with the shadowing. Can feel his intelligence come through in this picture …
Thank you so much genrobey for lovely feedback on my portrait of T.S.Elliot and also for the favourite. I am so glad you can feel his intelligence in this portrait.
