I have been trying portraits from time to time, with some limited success. This one came out OK...it looks like Skylar, but I don't know how to incorporate her spirit in the painting. This is 5 x 7.

Very nice, love this portrait, people portraits are very intimidating to me, you did a fantastic job.

Teressa Thompson said...

You did a great job! Don't be so hard on yourself! I've been told that it's all about the eyes with portraits.

Good luck with your entry into the show!

Helen - Thanks. I haven't seen you in a while.
