25 of 29 faces

Today I add a portrait in a bigger scale. It is 72cm x 102cm. I was visiting some blogs and on one blog I suddenly got the urge to move out of my sketchbook.
So here are some process-pictures:

The last photo is taken, while the paint was still wet, hence the shine. There is still work to do on this, but it is really cool to work with bigger paintings! There will be some more shaping of the face and body and the background needs more substance still.


  1. Oh my gosh Ilona... she is beautiful... love the gorgeous progress shots... and how she evolved and emerged from the background... absolutely stunning work...

  2. This is stunning Ilona. Going from sketchbook to that size is am great change. Cant wait to see it finished.

  3. wonderful of you to show the process of your painting. Lovely work! Truly inspirational!

  4. I like this very much, thanks so much for sharing your progress on it. Her expression is mysterious, which I think draws you in, wondering about it.
