This is Gertie, my wife. Yesterday she stood model in my art class. The first painting went totally wrong, but I was pleased about the second painting, which you see here to the left. I feel uncomfortable to paint family, but I finally feel I reached the level where I can get away with it.
50x70cm, acryl, took me an hour to paint.
Below the version by one of the other painters of the class, Tina Heins, also an excellent painting.
Portret masterclass, gisterenmorgen, Gertie stond model. Boven mijn tweede schilderij (de eerste was helemaal mislukt). Onder het schilderij van Tina Heins, een van de medecursisten, ook een schitterend resultaat.
Another of the paintings was posted by Rodney: see http://rodneyvdb.blogspot.com/
Nice to see so many personal versions of the same subject.
