Double Portrait WIP 3

I've finished painting the daughter now apart from a couple of small touch ups. I'm afraid I can't get her hair in my photo looking like it does in the real painting. I think the camera picks up on all the colours that I have used because her hair is made up of many layers of fine brushstrokes and then washed with clear water to soften it. I decided to finish the daughter before doing any more work on Mom because this now gives me some value references to help me get her skin tones correct.. at least that's my theory.



  1. Wow, Ona, her hair looks amazing. So realistic. You have painted her so beautifully, Mum is going to love this!

  2. Her hair is beautiful. Wonderful painting that you are creating.

  3. Her hair is can almost feel it. The skin tones are real and so translucent. Its such a wonderful painting.
