A Portrait of Artistic Multimodality
Two Views Two
Your second portrait and the model reminds me of a girl in a very famous painting.The only thing missing is a pearl earring!
Yes, that look however, not so well painted:) Thank you, Jess!
PS But of course, there is another story of a girl painting someone or something, probably the one who is looking at her. And there is more, I’m sure. Wonderful multi-dimension! 🙂
I love the second portrait, Elena. It makes me think what the girl might be thinking about, the pencil or pen in her hand makes it perfect. Sometimes, when I write something, I turn my head and look blindly aside and my mind is putting the bits and pieces together while I’m waiting for the result. That’s exactly the moment that I see in the painting and in the expression of the face. Great story indeed.
I am so pleased that you recognize this gesture, Petra. I do it too. Thank you very much.
Jane! Wonderful to connect again:)
These are equally fascinating portraits! One more like observing from outside and the other more personal and a bit mystical – to me, that is.
A lovely perspective. Thank you!
Both equally stunning, the first perhaps holding more mystery
I prefer the first as well. Thank you, Derrick:)
The sense of Dutch masters is here in both portraits. The viewpoint of the top painting is most arresting.
Thanks very much, Anna!
You have a kind of Renaissance vibe going here!
Yes, I guess there is. So much fine inspiration circling in the atmosphere.
You’re so talented. 🙂 These are amazing.
Much appreciated, Sarah.
Many thanks, John.
Elena, I love the way you paint people’s hair!! 🙂
Hair can be fun or a real pain to paint:) Thank you, Patsy!
I agree! I don’t normally do portraits, but the couple I did, one was easier than the other for some reason! You’re welcome!
Beautiful, quiet portraits that speak volumes!
Thanks so much, Louis!
Amazing and beautiful!
Many thanks, Carol:)
Such skilful work, I love the look in her eyes that you’ve captured too.
