My Lady Fair by waynecampbell-art My Lady Fair by waynecampbell-art
Oil on canvas 12'' x 16''

Her hair a tangle, an auburn crown.
A moment in time, a quiet sounds.
The wrap is simple, emerald green.
She's captive and free, as a dream.
For ever more, My Lady Fair.
It matters not of why or where.

This is TRADITIONAL PAINTING??

Oh my god...

*looks at own paintings and dies*

Stunning. How long did it take you? Did you paint from a model? Acrylics?

Thank you Filasis-Nome, yea, it's oil on canvas. It took about 20 days maybe more. I'm learning as I go and it doesn't always go in the right direction. The models name is Jenny and she's helped me with quite a few of these. I take lots of pixs with all kinds of poses and lighting so I can pick and choose from them bits and pieces to build the piece. I then arrange the pix all over the easle to ref from eventually leaving them all behind to concentrate on the canvas alone. Jenny obviously couldn't sit for 20 days of her life nor could I afford to pay her that much, so I just had to make do.
Cheers and have fun!

I was looking for something wrong with this, something to demonstrate my incredible knowledge and artistic eye, and...I couldn't find anything. This is beautiful. The bright area on her face and shawl contrasts so perfectly with the dark background. And her expression of...what is she thinking? It makes the viewer, me, curious and interested. What a master you are!

Thank you Alan, I am honored! I don't feel very masterly. I just tried to cover all the bases and I still want to go back and fine tune it some more. :D

She's gorgeous Wayne, the warmth of the skin tone is incredible with the way you've captured the light dancing on her cheek. Her hair looks lustrous as it apes her jaw line. The fabric speaks volumes with all those folds and creases.
I have seen work of a similar standard to My Lady Fair in the BP Portrait Award held in London every year. You must have heard of it.

Um, no I haven't. What does "BP" stand for?
Sorry, I'm kinda dumb this way with contests. I'm just recently forcing myself to play in them.
Thank you Very much for your kind words, James! It took a long time to do.

I'm quite surprised for an artist of your talent that you've not heard of it. Anyway, its a huge exhibition held at the National Portrait Gallery in London every year and it is sponsored by the fuel company BP (British Petroleum). Its right up your street, wait till you see the entries in the galleries contained within this link:

Its where the best portrait artists in the world get to compete against each other, the work is awesome. Please do have a look, its worth it.

Very cool! I saved the site and joined the list.
Thank you very much. It would be fun to place, but I seem to be lacking in mass appeal.
Still got a lot to learn... :-)

You're right!, there is plenty that we both have still to learn about our craft.
What you have learnt is self evident in your work and from our discussion on phi. You are an incredible portrait artist Wayne, your work just needs to be seen by the right kind of people.
