Little portrait


This is a little portrait I did on a 5 x 5 canvas. I have been doing an online portrait painting class with Sharon Tomlinson here
This is a first attempt and I am not very happy with it yet.I feel much more confident doing my faces with pencils and maybe a little paint. This is done with folk art acrylic paints mostly. I'll need a lot more practice!

  1. Astrid, I don't know why it took me so long to come take a gander at your blog! I love it! I really like the design on your page and I definately love your style of art!!
    I think you're picking up on Sharon's style of faces real good! I alreadt like the look on her face and the
    background. I think you might want to widen her neck a bit and then all the face needs is a bit more color and highlights. It seems to take me a long time to learn a new way where as some of you sure pick up on things fast!
    Glad I found your blog!!

  4. Astrid, I didn't know that you were in Sharon's class--I am too. I love the way this turned out--I love Sharon's faces--an old fashioned look to them--she's beautiful!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
