Following up on a request from Sally Downey to have a go at more portraits here's one of my God daughter Sheila, rendered today. Happy enough with it, but sadly doesn't really do such a gorgeous girl justice. Still will keep trying.

Ah thank you Sally, don't worry about losing your comments. Of course I took notice of your suggestion but still not confident enough to try from life. Still, photos are a start I suppose. Anyway with five boys don't think Sheila would have time to sit that long.

Hi Kevin, I am quite upset that my comments have disappeared.  I did respond when I first saw Sheila's portrait.  And it is quite possible that I neglected to press the Add Comment button.  And then you mentioned that I might have missed your blog.  So I recommented.  I can’t believe I could have missed the comment button AGAIN.  It’s the only explanation but it does sound like the dog ate my homework.

Let me say that I was flattered that you took any notice of my suggestion.  But isn’t it good that you did!  It’s a beautiful painting of Sheila.  It’s so clear and bright and simple.  And your god daughter comes through as a bright, happy and warm person.  I love the angle you chose.  It gives a lovely intimate feel.  It’s a really lovely portrayal of a beautiful girl.

PS and thanks for comment on Maherroarty.

Thats wonderful Kevin, I just found it now. It is great to see your studio work, your style shine through and it is a beautiful portrait

Cheers Kyrle, many thanks. Sheila was happy with it anyway so, mission accomplished I suppose. Here's the lady herself - for comparison

Apologies Kevin, I had just signed off on an e-mail to Tony!

Many thanks John appreciate that......even if ya did call me Tony Ha ha. No, was happy with it to a certain degree and Sheila loved it herself, so that was good.

Love it Tony. Your clean lines and minimalist washes that I know from your landscapes are very evident even in this subject.
