OMGosh, Edward. Beautiful!! I just popped in to see if anyone had posted, and am blown away. Thank you so much! She is so very elegant. Those cheekbones, and that wonderful expression and beautiful white hair. Wow. Plus, Venice is one of my all-time favorite cities. molto grazie, my friend! Bellissima!
Brilliant-Edward, you've captured so much of a moment in time-the mood on her face tells the story!
Great job Edward, this is a beautiful portrait of an elegant woman. Her eye and the way she is hold her mouth really draws me in.
I just had the best time letting my eyes travel all over the contours of her face, (what amazing cheekbones and eyelids!) and across the lovely gray hair and circling around down to her shoulders with the leather straps and herringbone pattern - I like the fadeout near your signature. This is just wonderful, Edward! I always adore your portraits.
Oh what a fabulous portrait. I just love how you capture her gaze also, it makes you wonder what she's thinking about. It's a very elegant and mesmerizing piece you did. I can see her looking down the canals on the vaporetto.
I can definitely see why you wanted to take this woman's picture and paint her. We all have a story to tell and because of her gaze, her dress, and the overall way she is carrying herself, I wonder what her story is. Edward, this is such a sensitive portrait, beautiful warm color palette and so well done.
Beautiful portrait Edward. Too bad she doesn't get to see it too!
I love this...awesome job! I like how you were able to capture her age without showing every wrinkle.
Wow... there isn't anything you can't paint well is there Edward. This is a striking portrait!
Hey, that's Aunt Flo when she went to Italy last year! Kidding. Whoever this lady is, you have captured a moment of wistful reverie that speaks volumes. Every feature of this portrait sets off "well done" bells & whistles. Simply great, Ed!
Fabulous painting Ed. You really captured a great look, and told the story with perfect colour and brushwork.
She looks very confident. I love this and all of the moleskins' work. Great variety in all of your styles!
Love it, my friend! The three distinct areas/elements, especially the hair and coat, have such great patterns that work well with one another.
An amazing portrait, Edward. I love how you captured her skintone and strong features. The pattern in her coat is also amazing...must have taken some patience!
