I've decided it's now finished. Signed and I'm exploring the house for a frame. Entering it for an exhibition. Long time since I've felt excited about painting.
The changes from the last posting are hardly discernible, mainly the hair, fingers, and the shadows on the back.

Thank you Janet and Dawn. The young lady who is in the photo also likes it and might want to buy it. Fingers crossed.
Jack
Very Happy

Best of luck on the exhibition (and possible sale)!
If you want - take some photos at the show and post them in the Extras area so we can all have a look

Well I thought it was finished. But my daughter Rachel examined it and decided she didn't like it. Taking account of her thoughts i decided I didn't like it either. So I re-worked it and went back to my old style of blending and more blending. At a recent exhibition the original received some good comments and I am hopeful that the new one will sell later in the year. Hope, hope, hope.

I liked this one before, but I REALLY like it now! Yes, I like it blended better.

Thanks Dayle
Shan't tell Rachel that you think she is right. Big headed enough.

You still have some "chunkiness" and texture, so you didn't blend all the life out of it! I think you got it just right! I love the way the light hits her shoulder blade. Very nice!

The whole thing feels much warmer and the skin texture much smoother. Like Dayle, I liked it before, but i also like it now. Good luck with possible sale.

I also like the one before, but as you have softened it -- I like this one...may you find someone who falls in love with it and can't live without it.

Personally i like the blended version. The finger nails jump out at you and seem to give personality to the girl.

Congrats!
