Romanian Folk Dancer by Starlace Romanian Folk Dancer by Starlace
This is the first portrait I've painted from photograph (which I found, as per usual, in an old Nat Geo magazine.) To be honest I'm happy with it as a painting but it's probably one of my worse portraits. Oh well, c'est la vie.

acrylics on canvas, waaaay too many hours. Like twenty.

You have to be kidding me! :) That is an awesome picture!
Wish I could be only half as talented and I'd be the happiest person in the world. :D

Why thank you ;) I appreciate that. (I only meant it doesn't resemble the original as much as I'd like. But...maybe I'm too hard on myself.)
