Very good on details in your work!
Preston Craig - Over 30 days ago
Thank you Stephany. Some of my pieces are more detailed than others because I find it a good balance to work a little more loosely at times.
Stephany Causey - Over 30 days ago
yea,Thats what im working more on,and i want to paint more background affects when doing portraits,Like you have,Preston.
Preston Craig - Over 30 days ago
Yes, adding more subtle background effects gives more interest to the portrait and can sometimes reveal a little something more about the personality of the client.
