Painted at this weeks AVA session, after drawing the subjects the previous day.
A Nubian Lady 16" x 12" Waterford High White 140lb (300gsm) not
I didn't think this too bad but it has gone down like a lead balloon on my Facebook 'Portraits ' group. Not one like! I don't get many likes for my portraits on there, the one exception being the 'Green Man'. I never expect to be overwhelmed with praise but it seems the mainly Asian membership prefer different styles. Actually when I painted it at my AVA group they also seemed distinctly underwhelmed.
Running Antelope 16" x 12" Waterford High White 140lb (300gsm) not
Another indian portrait. Possibly on the dull side but so was the guide photograph. Enough said.
