DANA


                                                 11 x 14   Oil

Here is the next oil painting I did. This one was from a picture. Her name is Dana I've never met her. She was very pleasant to paint. Her brother is my teacher and he's very good.

Vern Schwarz said...

Dominique, this piece shows some real growth with the oils. Looks like you've become very comfortable with your new medium. Great job.

Hi Dominique!
With my bad english i want to tell you your painting is very beautiful. Your Dana's portrait soaked up very well the light. Bravo and i like her expression in her eyes.
Best regards.

Its hard to think that it is your 3rd time..But who's counting?
It is a great portrait. Is her brother an art teacher?

You're moving forward with oils at warp speed. I think you've really captured her spirit. Beautiful

Wow, Dominique! There's so much I love about it! Her expressive eyes, the dramatic shadows, the brushstrokes and colors in her hair. (Hair is the most difficult for me to paint convincingly!)

Dominique, I cannot believe how fast you have gotten to this point in oil portraits! I'm so happy you took this plunge because you're a natural!
