Live (part 2)


I thought you might like to know how the class went. The artist/instructor shared several portraits commenting on each of them. Then...she showed mine, saying that she liked it even more than her own, which she then showed next to mine. So they were side by side on a slide!! The truly amazing part was that we had chosen almost identical colors everywhere. She made a couple of suggestions that she had included on her own portrait which were:

  • add red to the ear lobes, chin, and under the nose area

  • put a dark background to make the figure pop

I tried her suggestions. What do you think?


  1. I think she is a good teacher--- and I think you are a great student! Congratulations!

  2. They seem like good suggestions - I especially like how the dark background grounds the whole thing.

  3. Pretty uncanny how much they look alike. Congrats, my friend on taking a chance and getting such positive feedback.
