A Turkish painter

Happines that comes with "The Sun"

The joy of painting, I got it from my dad. He was a good painter in his youth. But sometimes working life lefts no room for anything else, so he put aside his brushes and pens. After his retirement, finally he was able to find time to pour his colourful world on to paper. Lately he is fond of painting portraits of Hollywood celebrities, and friends also.

This summer he drew a charcoal portrait of a beautiful young lady named Güneş (means "the sun"), the niece of our neighbour. The parents of Güneş loved the portrait and thanked a lot. A few days ago my father received a parcel, full of Bütün Dünya Magazines with the potrait on the back cover. What a beautiful surprise! What an elegant way to say "thank you"!

I love you dad, I'm proud of you! And thank you for sharing your talent with me :)

Finally!

Finally I'm satisfied with this portrait. What do you think?
WC, 13x30 cm

Another try...

After a couple of miserable tries...
I ended with this:
WC, 16x21 cm
...not a good one, but at least more decent :)

My daughter is going to kill me...

...for posting these. She doesn't like to be paint at all. And after these failures she could kill me. The good thing is she is not following my blog :)

I loved the portrait by David Lobenger, you can see it here, and see the difference between a pro and a so called watercolorist.

At the first try I started all wrong. Too much cool colors and they all turned to mud...



And the result is "The night of the living dead" :P

At the second try it seems like I started OK...

But again a lifeless poor painting. The right eye is so awful. I didn't even bother to put a background color. She looks like a zombie... Where did I go wrong??
