I warned ya on my January 25 (TaDa) post that on Thursdays I would be posting a little portrait or sketch of an artist that has at some time in the past, visited my blog. This is my first attempt...and maybe my last if nobody recognizes it. I have to work from a profile or web picture, so that could be difficult. The picture I had to work from revealed 3 things...One, the subject is a female, in all likelihood. Two, she is probably an artist cause she's painting a canvas. And three, from the little morsel of facial exposure I had, she had to be knockdown, drag-out gorgeous. Seeing another photo, this one full face , after I finished the painting, I was right on all counts.
For some unknown reason, I did this one in miniature..3 and a half inches by 5. I'm not that good at miniatures...I like to admire people like Akiko,who is great at miniatures...but, I'm passable. My finished painting I am fairly well pleased with. I only have one problem with it. I have no earthly idea if it looks like who I painted. It should be fairly easy to recognize, but I'm the guy who said "Hey, this''ll be easy" when I got my first Rubik's cube. So I'll leave it up to you and your comments and cross my fingers.
Oh..and notice the background. I really like it, but the little yellowish area around the top of her head kinda looks like a halo. That's only fitting, tho, cause she looks like a little angel jes painting her heart out.
