Fine Art Friday at Cathedral Park Place Studio 30

This morning I brought donuts to "Fine Art Friday"....making me instantly popular with my fellow painters.  Quin Sweetman was our "pinch-hitter" model.  She looked super-pretty in a frothy off-white dress and she did a very fine job of posing. To see what the others painters painted...go HERE.

Painting: Celeste Bergin, Quin, oil on 14x18 canvas panel

Hi Celeste,
this one read very good! I like you rendition, and have to agree the model did a great job!

Pretty, Celeste. Love how delicate your shadow colors/values are. Harmonizes perfectly with the subject.

Mmmmm... donuts! Your interpretation of Quin is quite lovely.

What a wonderful piece of work.

I like to see what the others did, and the record of events. That such an elegant portrait has its feet in doughnuts (don't you love our spelling differences :0)) and stapled dresses just adds to the total event.
Bravo, Celeste

Votre personnage a un regard noir très expressif. Son teint et l'ensemble de cette peinture ont des nuances d'une grande délicatesse et d'une fraîcheur sensuelle...
Gros bisous

A truly stunning portrait, Celeste! I've been dieting rabidly since March 13th and have only lost about 8 lbs. I wonder if I'll ever be slim enough to enjoy something frothy, feminine and oh so pretty. Quin must be over the moon with your painting!

Quin Sweetman is not only beautiful, but talented too. There's lots of emotion in her paintings on her Picasa page. You did a grand job Celeste of painting her at her loveliest. It's interesting to see how a number of painters perceived this woman in a number of ways based upon their own impressions and state of minds.

Hermosa, radiante y majestuosa...
