My first commission of 2014, happy new year everyone! :)
Would really appreciate any feedback on the portrait so far, I feel a lot of pressure to get this commission right as it is of a friends wife who recently passed away

Hello Sadie

I paint places with watercolors and know nothing about doing portraits but it looks like very good work to me.

Congratulations on the commission and good luck!

Hello Sadie

Looks like great work to me. You finished in very good time. I assume the customer will do the framing. From the photo it looks like you use a table top easel. Congratulations!

All The Best
