"Annette"

Painting people is always so much fun but it can be tricky, too. How do you create a different world in your painting? How do you create personality, body language, thoughts? Taking these challenges always means going on a journey at the end of which you will be a richer person.

  1. Wow, Marielle, this is absolutely amazing! Art has been a huge part of my life, too. I love to paint, to draw, to do things myself. It relaxes me and makes me happy like only few other things can. But I'm nowhere as good as you are! This painting is so beautiful. It looks like I can touch her hair and it will feel like actual hair. I love Annette's facial express - so sweet.

  4. To capture the essence, the personality of the person is the hardest thing to draw like you said, but when done the right way the result is amazing!
    Good Work Marielle
