Sultry Valri

Thanks to the WDE I am getting more confident at painting portraits. This was done for Valri Ary's WDE which is going on now. It is a photo of her from a cruise she took, and I am really happy with the way it turned out. This is about 6 x 6.

Hi Joan,

The portrait painting is excellent. What exactly is WDE and is there a charge to join. All the best.

Really lovely loose work that captures the likeness beautifully, Joan!

A beautiful job, Joan. I love the oblique point of view and immediately noticed how well you did with the shoulders turned as they are. Love the hair as well and the skin tones are perfection!

Joan said...

Joan - Thanks! I never did portraits, but have been experimenting there lately.

Sue - Thanks so much!

Sherry - Thank you. I was really happy with how close I came to the reference photo on this.

You did a really good job on the portrait of Valri. You are getting to be a very good portrait artist.
