Here are the final photos of the oil painting I have been working on over the last few months.
It is difficult to reproduce the painting accurately in a photograph. Partly because many of these photo's were taken on different days, and partly due to the reflective qualities of oil paint, so unfortunately they do not show the rich depth of colour the painting actually has.
However, a friend recommended a fantastic photographer who very kindly and carefully took some photo's for me. Check out his work at: pixxora.net
The photograph he took will be the one that I will shortly be updating to www.marionsimkins.co.uk
In the meantime here are the photos. To view a larger version, just click on the photo.

|Unfinished detail of Mum's face|
|A closer view of the finished detail of Mum's face. Lots of extra
touches have been added here. From the tiny hairs around the nose to
the whiskers, my favourite detail to paint is the eyes. For me, they
reflect Mum's personality and character. |
