New Painting

I think it’s finished anyway.

Had a bit of a crisis with her in the early stages, but I’m rather fond of her now. Not sure if she’s better than the last one or not; though maybe you should be the judge of that. Whatever. There’s something about the way she looks at me I really like. Click to embiggen as per.

Thanks, as ever, for dropping by. SOLD

    I being a moron tonight. I posted a comment about your new painting, but I think it’s gone somewhere else on your blog.

  2. CET Says:

  3. antipodeesse Says:

    I love her expression and quirky smile!

  4. Neil Lockwood Says:

    Excellent work as per usual, sir! – I like the wry smile, she looks like a game girl :o)

  5. Sophia Says:

    I am in love with the tilt of her mouth.

  6. Aiko Says:

    I like it. I like it alot. Lovely.

  7. Rose Says:

    I like this one much better! She seems to be judging me less.
    A more cheerful background and a cheerful expression; is there something pleasant going on?

    Anonymouse: Other comment duly noted, thank you. I’m still a bit torn between the two, truth be told. The second looks a little better in the flesh, I think. I’ll probably get them framed next week, then I’ll decide.

    CET: Thanks. I agonised over the background colour. I was aiming for something a little greyer. In my next painting, I’m advancing into the exciting new world of actually having some stuff in the background. TRUFAX.

    antipodeesse: Glad you like it. The expression’s a weird thing. It doesn’t look much like the one in the reference pic I used; it just sort of grows as you go along.

    Neil: Thanks. I think she sort of looks like she’s just been asked something that’s a bit rude and her initial incredulity is giving way to “Maybe”.

    Sophia: Thanks. I’m quite fond of her hair; not necessarily the way I’ve painted it but the style itself.

    Aiko: Glad you like it. I say, your twitter avatar’s quite foxy.

    Rose: The first one was a bit judgmental. She’s on my wall looking down at me as I type this. She looks somewhat disapproving.

    She looks like she’s on drugs. She so wants me. She can have me too. The minx.

    Its amazing. She’s beautiful. If you decide it needs a new home, let me know.
