Portrait of David Coulthard by Donna-Marie Quick

Portrait of David Coulthard

Oil on canvas. 16X20inchs.
I love F1 and being as DC's my favourite driver, I had to paint him. To me this is the real DC, relaxing and chatting.

wow, keep to the detail it works so well for you, this portrait is so real i love it, I love the detail also and have done a few sketches but for me its about feeling and I kind of feel colour if you know what i mean, its great that we're all different though and can appreciate eachother's art, yours is fab

I have been selling my stuff in the last 3 years and am part of an exhibition in November but it isnt my main job,I actually work with people with M.S helping them to discover quality of life through art and craft projects.
I am however taking more time to produce art and I work 3 days a week and try to dedicate at least 2 days to creativity.

What part of England are you from? Did I say I was English? Its hard to get started depending on your age and time restraints, I have 2 boys 12 and 15 so now they are older I have more time. You do have a great talent, dont waste it, maybe join a class near to you and meet other artists and network, its great to talk online but in the flesh is better and meeting people that are like yourself is always great inspiration.

Artist Statement
for Donna-Marie Quick
Donna-Marie QuickI'm a struggling portrait artist from essex. I havent been in any fancy galleries and im pretty much self-taught. Still learning with every new commission and I've finally got my website up and running woohoo lol.
Do you ever NOT title something if you think it may be "unappealing" or do you just "LET IT GO" because its just what you feel it SHOULD be ?
HI Diane -Marie beautiful but sad you have portrayed the emotional really well . The fish look sad too maybe they sense of what is going on . No I don't... view answer
