I'm not british, but i think she looks gorgeous. My grandma just told me 'bout her car crash, so sorry to hear that, i know it's late now, but its better late than never right?

Thank you for commenting and I'm glad you enjoyed the painting. She took Many hours...rather days, I mean months to complete. 6 as a matter of fact. After fininshing her, I sent an 8x10 image to her brother...the Earle Spencer in Wales. Her family gave me the copyright and permission to make prints and sell the painting. The Ballagio and Treasure Island her in Vegas had teh painting on display for 3 months in teh Cirque de Solei, Green Room show case. What an honor that was.

Paintings like this just take alot of patience, attention to all teh many atributes in painting that make...a good painting; composition, lighting, edges, color-warm, cool, intense or toned down. Handling of the brush...all these things put together, when done propperly, make for a winning painting. I have been getting requests for prints f her both in Giclee (print on canvas) and regular paper form. I'm trying to pind the right printer who has experience in printing artwork.

Thanks again for taking the time to visit my gallery and commenting. ~Patrick

:wow: You can call this painting a total success ! You must be so proud ( I would lol). There is a few drawings of her in my gallery but there are not that brilliant. You are Leonardo Da Vinci reincarnated (and Diana is your Mona Lisa :)).
Take care :D

I think its because the dark hair line is too sharpe and needs to be softened to add the illusion of receeding into the background. I started learning this traditional style at the end of 2000 and started paintiing this piece in early 2001. So, I do admit my skills were lacking then, but it was a great learning experience. It was the first time I had attempted fabric. Thanks for the comment and good eye.

I read your comment on one of lockstock's stock pictures, where you described the process of creating a painting and how you picture it in your head, and the feeling you get when you are about to create something. I must say your description of the process was incredible, and you described it so perfectly. Also, this painting is incredible, your talent screams out of the picture. I was happy to hear about the success you achieved with this picture, you really deserve it. I have no formal training in art, but got into digital art a few years ago, and have been creating pictures ever since. If you have time, I would really appreciate if you could take the time to check out some of my work. I've been working really hard, and would really appreciate a comment, good or bad, from someone such as yourself who has such an amazing understanding of art. Thanks, and keep up the incredible work.

Thank you so much for your comments. After viewing your gallery I think you too, feel the process in which I was describing. Sometimes the idea and the actual process of creating becomes a part of you. One can actually feel as if they are there, like an out-of-body experience, with the person or in the image. When I painted Dianna, I felt as if I were next to teh camera man who was photographing her. I felt so close as if some kind of metaphysical realationship was made. I know that sounds somewhat wied. I usually dont talk in Metaphysical jargin. I also get the overwhelming feeling of closeness and intamacy when painting a nude. I feel the sensation of running my hand along their warm soft curves. Feeling the tendernous of skin and teh passion that radiates from their image......then I try to translate that to the canvas. It can become so erotic that by the time I'm through with a sitting...my mind, heart and senses are bursting.

Gee...I need to paint more!!!!! :)

Thanks again for your comments. I'm glad my words made some sense to you when describing my painting process. I think alot of us Creatives feel that way.....aint it great!
