Hand-painted portraits





Here's some more art. Portraits done the 'traditional' way. These were done in watercolour, with charcoal for detail. I have sold some of these portraits, and love doing custom ones of peoples' family and friends.

Hey Retro Girl,

Love the name. I am glad you have plunged yourself into blogworld.

I have given your blog a plug in my latest post, so hopefully you should get some visiters from my neck of the woods soon.

Love these pictures, you are so talented.

I will talk to you soon, maybe catch a dvd soon.

Take Care

V

Aww! Thanks Vee.
I shall put your link up also.

I can't believe it took me so long, but I'm glad I finally have one.

Dvd sounds good, catch-ya!

Thankyou, imwithsully!
I'm so glad that you have come to have a look, and even more so that you like my work!

Unfortunately, I do not have a website or online portfolio as yet. (I'm a little behind the times!) But I will continue to put my work here, and if you are interested, I can email a portfolio to you.


Thankyou again, and I do love your blog also - very nice work!
