Hey Donna! Finnaly back in the game! I like this angle too. But i more like how colores turned out. That background and all stuff around, kept in dark, get to this picture some kind of misteriosity. Good job!!!!!!

Great job, Donna! You should be proud of yourself with this work of art. It sets a certain mood with the stoic faces, and the grayish moody color pallet. With just enough small amounts of brighter colors to set the balance. Your so talented with the portrait works, girl. I so hope this band puts this painting on their CD cover, too. You deserve very high marks for it. 5x*****5x*****50x******! Absolutely love it.

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.
What do you think of art classes using other peoples work for teaching, is it a good idea to see how other artist form paintings or should they try to be...
Excellent, 90% impressionist and 10% realist Other peoples work is excellent to teach skills and technique or the way the student sees the work making... view answer
