staying loose

Trying to capture light, shadows and staying loose. Not easy when a portrait is involved...we always tend to tighten up and try to capture an exact likeness...

Mornin' Annelein, the impression I get is that he is outside in the rain looking in through a window. That is what this looseness makes me feel. Lovely job on this.

True Annelein. Very difficult work. Nicely executed.

You have certainly kept this lovely and loose - It's fantastic! One of the things I find the hardest is loosening up. I'm a naturally neat person, but one day I hope to get to grips with watercolour :0)

Oh but I so love your portraits. The "loose" just is perfect for your gorgeous style, Annelein!
