My version of 'Offline' from Pedro Fernandez Works. One of my favourite busts and a compelling backstory from the creators provided inspiration and guidance ( https://pedrofernandezworks.blogspot.com/2019/11/offline.html ). I took the opportunity here to attempt structured fabric textures and had fun coming up with ways to paint the houndstooth tweed.

    Can’t wait till you stop using the potato camera.

    • Josh_Underhill

      Thankyou Kara! - Yes but I think its the operator to blame - I am not a photographer - only a phone but an iphone 11 shooting RAW so potentially shouldn’t have been too bad - just something I need to improve on

  • Roman LappatPLUS

    Beautiful work. Listen to Kara ;)

    • Josh_Underhill

      Thankyou very much Roman, (yes I will)

  • BranPLUS

    Congrats, your painting is fantastic !!

  • John Delamere

    Amazing paintwork.
    The textures and lighting are awesome. And to paint houndstooth as a pattern must have taken a while especially with all the color variations in the shading.
    Absolutely gorgeous. I still need to paint my copy.

  • Jorge Budagosky

    Una preciosidad. Las texturas están muy bien logradas asi como los ojos “aguados” a punto de estallar en llanto. Espectacular. Oro y favorito

    • Jorge Budagosky

      It is a beauty. The textures are very well achieved as well as the “watery” eyes, about to burst into tears. Spectacular. gold and favorite

    • Josh_Underhill

      Gracias Jorge. - I’m glad you can read the intention - I wasn’t sure if it was apparent in these photos. I did try to depict eyes red and brimming with tears following the character backstory from Pepe Gallego/PF Works.

  • Jim Jackson

    Very pretty and quite realistic. So many painters go for super bright everywhere, but you’ve done just enough highlights. The pattern work is fantastic and I love your treatment of her hair!! GOLD

    • Josh_Underhill

      Thanks Jim! - I did try not to overpaint the face and hair

  • Luis UgartePLUS

    Great job! Gold!
