Rachell our Tinkerbell

"Rachell our Tinkerbell" oil on 11x14 board
A Portrait of Rachell our Tinkerbell

After all the Easter festivities we are coming back to normal and back to painting, John at the moment is painting a large board with Iris (irises) for our newly decorated bedroom. I am looking forward to it being complete and off our kitchen table, the board is to big for the easel!

My challenge was from a photo on Facebook that I thought I would paint, not having indulged in the human face before I found it was very different from animals!

It has given me a great deal of anguish all the nuances of subtle colour, her eyes being so dark brown with mascara gave me plenty to work on. Being 17 years old,  vivacious, and almost a woman, I am batting a Thousand against her liking my rendition of her!

I think her personality though has crept in with my effort, as ever I have a nerve putting this one on the blog before she has seen it!



  1. I think it is very good. I have had real trouble with getting exact likenesses and always found the coloring difficult to capture. I do think her personality comes through- a little bit cheeky and fun.

  2. Oh, my goodness..she is have captured her perfectly, I think. I do feel that I can see her lovely and lively personality.
    I say, Well Done.
