  3. Who is on this picture? The expression of the woman on the portrait doesn't match Marie.

    1. That was my first thought. This portrait does not look like Marie. Not at all. Eyes, nose, lips, hair do not match her features and even more her expression.

  5. Its a beautiful portrait of Marie - but I find the 'dripping paint' look to be a bit odd.

  7. Great portrait! I love that the clothes and background are similar and blurry tones so that her face is highlighted.

  8. What a beautiful portrait of Princess Marie. Most of those portraits just don't do their subjects justice, but this one really looks nice. I love the colors that are used. There is just one unusual thing about the picture and that is it looks like the paint has been allowed to run down the painting. I am wondering if that is a certain style of painting?

  9. Yeah, but what about the colour dropping/dripping background? What was he thinking?

  10. I find the artist has 'caught' Marie's warm personality very well, also in his choice of colours ...... but the dripping background is a bit strange IMO. I remember a portait of her painted last year, it was really awful and her little son Henrik said, it doesn't look like mom!!! He was right!

  11. I like it. I think it looks a lot like her. I like the muted colors and how it is classic and yet modern.

  14. Beautiful portrait, but the paint drippings are a distraction.

  15. I'm no great art critic, for sure, but after he had painted a nice likeness of her he threw on those distracting drips as though he had no more ideas for a background. I'd send it back and ask for some greenery or a room or anything else. It is a cop-out to just drag drips on it. Too bad. She should expect better for the money it no doubt cost to have done.

    1. Agree. It looks like she is fading info the background. 😕😕
