    Off the back of Supanovas thread of his sketches (excellent work by the way), I thought I would start a thread up to show some of the work of my daughters friend. She is unbelievably talented as far as I'm concerned, and I reckon she'll be comfortably off from work such as this

    Here are some of my personal favourites, which Laura has very kindly given me permission to post.

    Your welcome re the kind words, you have a talent mate, simple as.

    Yes Laura has got a site;

    Laura Hinshaw Art - Home

    She normally depicts them at various stages of completion, so it's interesting to see how she builds up the layers

    I honestly don't know mate. It won't be hundreds, but then again it won't be £20. I would say, going by a price she gave me of something I asked about, between £100 and £200 maybe, but you are getting a unique piece of art in oils (I think its oils she uses).

    I've sent her a link to this thread anyway.

    That is amazing work a very talented artist, does she do portraits from photos, going to look at here site and once I have a pic of my 3 boys in a few months might send a copy of it and see if I could get her to do a painting of it.

    She certainly does mate. If you look on her site, there is a painting on there of herself when she was little, with her Dad. That painting is done from a photo.

    Thats a true talent, and for such a young person its hard to belive the detail of the pics, iv seen university art students with less talent.

    :thumbsup:

    *edit, i take it that its the young girl to the right of the one pic.
