Johanna by blackhair85 Johanna by blackhair85
A quick afternoon portrait I´ve made of a friend of mine... I painted the original version about two years ago and I´ve rendered it numerous times since then, using different material, different brands of paint etc.

This is the last version from maybe a month ago... and it´ll definitely won´t be the last...

Aqrylic mixed with pencil and oil pastels on paper, 40x50 cm

stunning. Paints do not like me, so unfortunately I am stuck with dry mediums right now. I wish I could use acrylic like that. You make it seems so spontaneous and easy!

This is so beautiful with the colors. Tell me, are you studying art? Or are you self-taught??? Or yet again, a proffessional painter:)?

The composition seems almost Victorian, love the contrast with a more abstracted style.

This is absolutely lovely. I adore the texture and the colour combination. I like that you've given her face more detail and as the picture moves out from there, there's less detail. It really gives it a sense of focus. Her eyes appear so alive.

I love it! Her eyes are so intense - I love how the focus is on her eyes and the detail slowly fades out until it is just dashes of paint - this is brilliant!!!

When I saw the name, at first I thought it was the Joanna from Sweeney Todd. She looks like her! Anyway, great painting, it's beautiful. :)

I absolutely love this. It reminds me so much of those quick classical sketches with a tight focus in one area. Her eyes are arresting, and the color is beautiful. :)
