OTMA 1914

blessOTMA, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL work! I'm so glad to see it completed, and what an accomplishment it is. I think it may be my favourite of the lot (not that I don't like all of them immensely). Her eyes are very well done, and her expression is captured quite perfectly. A round of applause to you.

Thank you Keegan! It means a great deal to me you should like them so well.  Being a Romanov artist yourself, you know it's a labor of love. But it's  funny, the paintings are like my children ...I can't pick a favorite! lol! I will now embark on a large rendition of Marie , Olga and Tatiana dressed for KR's funeral. It will take some time , but I so look forward to it.  Thank you again!

Magdalena you are at a very interesting point, where it's time for the lines. It's like getting ready to dive into a pool
... one has to decide when and were to take the plunge. I would say approach it freely, you can always undo it....
and  you might gain a happy accident :). Much of art is recognizing something has happened and keeping  it ,
 rather than consciously making it happen. It looks great so far!

Magdalena, look at your reference photo as much if not more than your work. One can lose their way other wise. Infuse yourself with the reference photo....that's where your inspiration is. And I would say just do it...this is on computer right? Save a file of what you have and then make a number of attempts... you can always go back to the current file...I post my videos to show people the  art is made in a mess...it's not perfect, it's one long correction. By the end of the picture , I have painted their faces many times. And I can do the last one because I know the way...having traveled it so much before. If it had to be right from the first, I couldn't do it. What you have now is quite good! Also think  about using a dark brown for your lines. It's less harsh than black. But try not to judge yourself , even about how long it is taking!

You know how much I love your work blessOTMA! I'm looking forward to see the OTM one.

I've made a drawing of Olga. At first I was quite happy with it, but now I've seen it scanned, I'm not so sure anymore..

It's very good! But you know the eyes remind me of Tatiana's   more than Olga's.. look at the bottom of her eyes again. They are quite different than TN's...if you change the drawing a bit  to reflect what you see in a close up, you might see an improvement in the likeness ... the right eye is more like Olga's than the left imo.  But as I say, it's very good! This is just a  small suggestion. But I think you have been drawing for awhile! You have a nice style  :)

BlessOTMA, I guess you're right! When I've got time I will change it. I think I will put some more shadow below the left eye, it may be a small change, but I hope it will be enough.
Thanks for the advise, it's nice to get some from such an artist!

Missy-T  you are too kind! Yes OTMAA had creases under their eyes...putting them in helps one.
