Double Portrait Painting

I am enjoying painting so much, I had forgotten how satisfying it is to capture an expression, a likeness. Two-thirds of the way through this painting, I have yet to complete the glazing and warming of the skins tones in the girl on the right and there are more tresses to add at the far left.  I may also add detail to the background if I have time. (only 4 or 5 painting days left before the deadline) The sitters, I am glad to report, seem genuinely pleased. They are sisters and each of them has remarked on how good the likeness is of her sister!My Deighbours' Daughters

  1. Thanks James – all those lessons with Kingy at school have proved useful after all! I loved the art room and he was endlessly patient and encouraging.
