Selfies and Others, Elaine, by Sirkka Jalava

I have given a try, three tries, to get Elaines beautiful features on the paper. I can not decide, which one of them is most like her. So I let you do it instead. 
This first one I did last. They all are aquarelles in size 32x24cm.
This is the second one.
And this I did first. I had not realized yet the eyes and nose, how they should look.  So when I look at these pictures I get more and more the feeling, that the first one which I did last, has most likness . What do you think?

  3. Wow, Sirkka, they are all beautiful but I think the top one captures the Elaine I've seen best...that gentle but intense tilt of the head, and gaze...

  6. Wow Sirkka, I can't decide which one I like best! I think I must agree with you and everyone else, that the top one is the closest. I can't believe you did this three times! I know it's hard to do my face -- I don't have a bridge in my nose like a European! And my eyes look cross eyed just because of my face's shape!

  7. Thanks jaguarish for stopping by. I have been waiting for your comment. You are right, your nice nose was a problem to get right, I did not think on it before I tried to do it.. And the eyes too. But I hope you like these. I have these portraits on my blog to day too and some on the fb.
