Thank you Cynthia, I started out drawing light lines of boxes measurements , over the reference photo . Then made large boxes measurements on the large paper, then I started to draw and keep for example, if the one box had his shoulder and part of his arm, I would stay with those measurements ,,it sure helped with the full composition . I hope you can understand what I mean. All the best, Sincerely, Doris

Composition is great and the details on the shirt is good. My only critique is that some of the figure edges is a little bit too sharp, I would suggest that you might want to soften some of the areas especially in the legs so that it looks less graphic and more realistic. But overall good portrait

Artist Statement
for Doris Billing
Doris BillingI find myself, now in the early autumn of my life,,, re-visiting my passion, for art,,in all of it's many forms. As of April 2015,,I have been a member of Wellington Artist's Gallery,for a fifth season.,and as of 2016 the Gallery is closed,as result of the owner Beryl Dawson passing away. I miss her so much, she will be missed by many. In 2015 I was in the Hills Erin Studio Tour, thoroughly enjoyed, as I received several commissions. Also I'm an exhibiting member of Headwaters , Caledon.(Alton Ontario) ,.My theme for life. "You are no better than anyone else, but no one is better than you. Respect others as you would like to be respected.Be a good listener, and be giving of wisdom and Love.Do not wish your Life away, Seize the Day...

As artists we have an emotional outlet for our feelings by painting. Does anyone else feel this way?
Wonderful contrast..interesting color palette..boldness comes to mind.Nicely done Shiva. I use painting to "balance out" things. I feel when something... view answer
