My first painted piece that I am actually proud of. I spend ages on completing this one and while there might be bits and pieces I'm thrilled about - overall I like it.
I think my main problem is I prefer to see results right away - so while I don't mind working on details, they shouldn't take too long to finish. The second piece I've been working on is going to take a while. I can't seem to get it quite right so for now it's just sitting on my computer, waiting to be finished.
And yes - I am one of those fanatics that can't wait for season 2 of Outlander. Perhaps I'll get around to finish it in time for the next season.

  16. These portraits are fabulous. Both are so beyond what I could ever achieve. It's so inspiring and your talent shines through these gorgeous images. Spending a lot of time perfecting them, obviously pays off.
    I can't wait to see the final one finished.
    I have read the books and thought they were brilliant... but I haven't seen the series yet. I suppose I'm bothered that they might not live up to book.
    Thank you for sharing and congrats on being PPF's choice for this week.
