Linda Popple - Paintings in Oil
Great job on this one. He looks intimidating! Those eyes!
I would say this is one of your best- the nose and mouth are awesome! Look at the sculpting....Giiiirl- you got it going with these. Wipe, paint, keep!! Yay!
This is great Linda. You really nailed it. I love how the blue in the eyes and collar pop.
Beautiful colour tones and hues Linda. I love how you repeated the blue from his shirt into his face. Very effective. He has very intense dramatic eyes. They draw you right it.
I vote for 'best one so far' as well. Beautifully intense eyes...
Terrific portrait with wonderful expressive lighting! You're right - each one seems to get a little easier. Painting is like exercise in a way isn't it? At first sit-ups nearly kill you but get easier as your muscles get toned. I'm finding the more of these we do - the faster it goes.
I like the cool colors in his face. Looks like viridian and white...it's surprising how that helps to show the form. I continue to find these portraits moving...because the people in jails are never "honored" (of course)...but they are people like everyone. It is a strong message.
This painting has a great deal of character as well as being beautifully painted. I like that you have handled the paint in a thinner consistency... (something that I am working on) nicely done.
You really nailed this one. It looks very fresh, like you put all the paint on in just the right place the first time. Congratulations
I really like all the color in his face and those eyes! Great painting Linda.
Look at that penetrating gaze! Great skin tones!
