1st Nation Elder

this painting of a BC 1st Nation Elder was done with Paynes Grey . I some times add Ultramarine blue to it. This color is so versatile and I prefer it to black in many cases . Sorry about his shirt my camera didn't pick it up well .

Hi Mary:
I think your portrait has character. The face suggests to me that the past has not been easy but he has survived and become a stronger person. I hope you do more like this.

Eyes
by: Dorothy , Carluke

Hi Mary,

I think you are getting the eyes much better now and I like this painting. I wonder what he is thinking is he looking back on things past or looking to the future - hard to tell.

I also like Paynes Grey better than black - less harsh.

Regards,

Dorothy
