These two ladies are just incredible! But - I would have given the eyes a bit of highlights, and for some reason the younger woman has different sized pupils...

Interesting observation. The direction of lighting in the photograph was somewhat of a challenge, but I actually added more detail to the eyes. Portraits can be hard to handle for exactness. You might consider trying it sometime. Best Regards, Rick

Artist Statement
for Rick Martin Sr.
Rick Martin Sr.Love to draw and engage with other artist of similar interest and styles. Mostly self taught and still learning. There are so many talented artist to converse with, learn from and emulate on this great website of "Paintings I Love".
Glad to be a supporting member.
Thanks to all for your many compliments and inspiration.
I found this a very difficult painting to do, I think I overdid the building detail, do you think it detracts the eye away from the memorial ?
Graham, this painting touches me in ways I can't describe. No, the detail does not distract...and your rule of "3rds" is fine. Wonderful work and thank you... view answer
