'Laurel Holloman' by Alison Sinclair

'Laurel Holloman'

This lovely lady is from 'The 'L' Word' & many other films!

My second attempt at a pencil portait.

Loved doing it & it was a great learning curve! So any of your comments would be greatly appreciated!
I've been thinking of getting some prints of this one done, I've had such a great response from The 'L' Word followers I think it may be worth it! Email me if you are interested!
Prints of this drawing are now available at http://celebritiesandmoreportraits.webs.com/

Artist Statement
for Alison Sinclair
Alison SinclairMy Name is Alison but I prefer to be called Allie!
I have always been fasinated by art of all forms. My dad was my inspiration as he always dabbled with water colours & oils when I was a kid & I thought 'I'm no good at maths, no good at english but I would really like to paint like my dad!' So I did as best as I could at school but was told I wasn't good enough to do 'O' level. This put me off for quite a while but then in my twenties I decided to get the brushes out to prove that teacher wrong! So here I am now completely self taught!

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...
amazing painting... i saw it this morning... late for work looks like he's doing the hokey pokey in a very serious way or maybe ballroom dancing really... view answer
