Lanice

This is Lanice.  The reference photo is of my granddaughter's girlfriend... Lanice is what I always look for in a model.  Although I'm not into piercing, I left the nose ring in because this is who she is...  I used Rembrandt and Terry Ludwig pastels for this portrait...

  4. Bonjour ma chère amie,

    Bravo pour ce très joli portrait. J'aime ce regard un peu perdu dans ses pensées...

    Je suis d'accord avec toi, sans le piercing elle doit être encore plus belle cette jeune fille !

    Quel talent tu as !

    Gros bisous 🌸

  11. Lovely portrait! Hope you and your daughter are doing well. We are moving in the next two weeks, so I probably won't be around for the next month or so. Will be fun catching up on your newest work after we are settled in again.

  15. She has a kind and lovely face but wonder how her mother felt about the ring being in place - wonder if she asked!LOL.
    The piercing is what will place the period of time this was done for future historians.
    Same as Sargent's clothes on his affluent women!
    Have a fabulous week, Hilda

  16. I have wondered myself whether her Mom approves. She's a pretty girl and doesn't need piercing so I hope it's a fad..lol. ... However, I truly enjoyed painting her ...now I'd like to paint a still life?? Sending hugs!!!

  18. Buscando tu respuesta a mi comentario, acabo de descubrir que no salió en el blog (?)
    Bueno, te decía que me gustó mucho este retrato y que al pintarlo te arriesgaste mucho con ese piercing que lleva la niña en la nariz. Te decía también que en cierta ocasión dibujé a una niña en el tren y llevaba un aro en su nariz. Como no pude borrarla, me quedó algo muy feo y lamentable a la vista...
    A ti te ha quedado muy bien y muy guapa.
    Un abrazo.

  19. gracias por tu encantador comentario Josh. Siempre eres tan amable. Llevar un anillo en la nariz a algunas personas es una forma de arte. Vengo de la "vieja escuela" donde no llevabas un anillo en la nariz. JeJe ... Sin embargo, fue una alegría pintar y es una chica tan agradable. Enviando abrazos
