Acrylic portrait practice

Trying to do a painting of my daughter. it has all the elements of her – short hair, slightly arched eyebrows, brown eyes – yet it’s not her. Capturing likeness eludes me.

      1. Haha, yes, a steep learning curve for me…a very different deal to acrylics in some ways – a post sharing my experience should be along sometime this weekend, all being well. 😁

  1. This is beautiful. I recently drew a face and it ended up looking like my son, but it was a pure fluke. Usually, my portraits have elements of the person in them – like a caricature, but a really rubbish one. 😐

  2. Naturally I can’t speak to the likeness, but this is really a great piece. It looks like there is a lot of subtle texture and depth, particularly around the eyes. As someone said above, there’s an impression of thoughtfulness that jumps out.
