"Portrait study"

Last night I went to a live painting session organized by my friend Eric. The model had some problem and couldn't come. Eric's mother sit for us. Although she hadn't modeled before, she did a wonderful job. I did this oil sketch. I love to paint human, and I am confident I can do well. I just need to do more to get more experienced.

Love the looseness of this. You did well defining the features and at the same time gave it so much interest and character with your brushwork.

You really made her eyes speak to me! They have a look of wisdom.
Lovely!

very very very nice.It is unusual for a painter to do humans so well and be just a good at stills but you do both VERY well.

This one is excellent!I love how you've captured just enough so we know who it is and left the rest mysterious and free! Love this style.
