I started like this,had fun and made some pennies. If you'd like to go futher, start drawing and painting from real life, and make observations in a sketch book....Start by doing self portraits - by looking in the mirror! Oh what challenges await you......!

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.
Added this dark background to the previous painting, now wish I hadn't! So please would you suggest anything I could do now to improve it again, or is it...
this is a lovely tiger, hilary. if u were going to do anything a bit of orange in the blue so you can blur out from him into the blue cloud in levels to add... view answer
