To Buy List: Picture Frame


Watercolor pencil on paper

This is just a small potrait, but I took maybe more than 2 weeks to finish it. I had to do it bit by bit, maybe 30mins-1hour at night after settling the chores. It is dedicated to my hubby's 37th birthday on recent 28th November because I have no extra fund to buy him any birthday present. I know, it looks more like something for anniversary rather than for birthday right? Eventhough I think my own lips look a little bit tilted compared to the original photo, and that a friend said I looked older, and through the camera's LCD my mummy think my hubby didn't look like him...but I gave 110% effort on this, you know! This is my third attempt to draw real people potrait; the first one is this, and second here.

Hm, maybe the real present would be a perfect frame to match the potrait, don't you think?

emosi wanita dalam gambar tu mcm sedih, pasrah, redha saja. sedangkan lelaki itu nampak tenang dalam keterpaksaan.

tapi lukisan awak memang cantik.

helo Pupu,
Yes I got your email. Still working on it. Sorry I forgot to reply your mail.

hai amer,
wah anda sangat observatif!

Lukisan itu berpandukan foto yang sangat kontrol ayu dan kontrol macho. hehe. macam ala2 gambar menteri kabinet yang kena gantung di pejabat2 tu kan. :)

Amer Yusof said...

hahaha, gambar menteri memang control macho..tp gambar agong, tuanku mizan macam stress je. hehehe.

Amer Yusof said...

Hi Mangosteen,
Salam tahun baru. Td abgjas baru singgah di blog waterlily (waterlilysicksadcity.blogspot). Ternampak di situ imejan seorang gadis berpayung yg konsepnya mirip lukisan mangosteen suatu waktu dulu.

Pantas saja abgjas teringatkan Mangosteen..:)

P/S: Sampaikan salam tahniah harijadi utk hubby mangosteen.
Lukis besar2 dan frame kat dinding rumah...cantik!
