Oh, this is just perfect, Maria! The lights and darks are so beautiful, so much light and volume with such crisp colors. Great work!
Thank you Blaga. This was such a great photo from a beautiful (but cold) winter day, it made the painting easy!
Well done, Maria! You have got some wild colors in there, and I love it!!!
Kathryn, so much easier to be brave with colors when painting for fun, and not a portrait for someone, if I don't like how it turns out, I don't have to show anyone!
This is gorgeous Maria! I love everything about it. :)
