Good work. My hats off to you here! :cowboy:

Don't underestimate the value of keeping things loose. Some of the best portraits are very loose in the background but get tighter when the artist nears the face.

Thank you! Not doing a lot at the moment, but will continue to work both realistic and loose..

I'm working on it, and I must tell you this was a lot of work to get it to look right and loose at the same time. :)

Thanks for stopping by. :) :) :)

Well, not so good after a few weeks of pretty intense practice my muse drug me back to art. :) Will return sometime I'm sure and the whim of the winds. :)

For now I will focus on learning more art/painting. It come much more natural (I think) to me than piano of music. For now I'll let the music inspire me and do my art.

I think you're on a right course.
Going back and forth between the piano and the art/painting works wonder in appreciating both elements:)
If I'm not mistaken, an American painter J. S.Sargent did the same thing and even had a piano in his studio:)

Interesting. I know Joni Mitchell does painting and songwriting usually sequentially...
