Just received the exciting news. My pastel portrait painting “The Gold Bangle” won Judge’s Choice in the Contemporary Art Gallery Online Figurative/Portrait Competition 2017. This is the best inspiration to work harder. Realistic art is difficult because I don’t want my work to look like a photograph, but rather like a real person or subject.
