My Grand-daughter Sara

My Grand-daughter Sara

140 cold press paper. Winsor Newton water colours. About 16x12.


I find portraits difficult and my results are not very good. However I really wanted to paint my grand-daughter Sara and after many attempts managed to come up with this one. I think the colours I have used make the painting look rather cold so will attempt another one using warmer colours.

A favourite memory of Sara. I put her to bed when she was quite small and as I left the bedroom a little voice shouted after me "I wuv you Mops."

Professional
by: Portrait of Sara

I think you are talking yourself down here . . . this is a beautiful, very professional looking portrait. There is nothing cold about the skin tones you have achieved and I think the cool background helps to emphasize that fact. It looks like a photograph it is so good.
Excellent work.

Mops, I think you have done a very natural realistic portrait,I bet it bears a good likeness to your grand-daughter. Water colours can't be the easiest medium to work with for portraiture so five stars from me for a great effort.
Cheers Pearl
