My first try at Artrage, and I wanted too do a portrait of my Dad.
The plan was to get it printed to a canvas, as a gift to my siblings.

Any critique is welcome.

Hi Barnabas

I love what you have done with this portrait, it clearly shows a love for your father as all the attention is to his face which emits a serene comforting appeal. I look forward to seeing further efforts from you.

the most interesting part of this painting for me is that i can follow the brush strokes and see how they formed a human face ...

The finished portrait...

The only thing i regret is that i made it in a very small size, so I will paint him again, in a better resolution.

Welcome and a fantastic portrait Barnabus. Yes, I get caught making them too small because I just think I'm having a quick fiddle then get drawn in to do a full work.

Now I have a preset canvas saved on my desktop! :)
