Kay, It's fine. I'll just add the link to it here just in case someone has trouble finding it. Thank you for sharing! Smile

I worked on this on Sunday, mainly her face. Did enough to really mess up the eyes, so had to wipe them off. Just got back to it today:

Callie, your painting is looking great! The depth is wonderful and I love the rich texture you're getting in the her clothes. Eyes are the most difficult part of a portrait. I don't see them as being that off. Smile

I had to re-size and re-shape them. Next I'll try and soften some of the hard lines and put some highlights in. Hope I can do that without messing them up again!

She is beautiful. I love all of it, especially the pearls. They look so real. Judy

I gave it a shot. Sorry I really messed up her features and I was getting black in everything. Just one of those really bad painting sessions. I wonder if I should have done the background last. Smile

Janet - There's a lot of good stuff going on here. I know you usually paint alla-prima, but I hope you're going to continue with this! Her scarves and clothing are beautiful, as are the flesh tones Maybe let it set up a bit, then you could touch up the background around her face.

Her expression is wonderful, especially the eyes. It all looks great and a little touch up around the face to separate out the background and yuou'll have it. Nice work.

Judy

I'm calling it finished. Just redefined the side of the face.

Finally done and just a few days late :



Up close, I find lots of things to tweak, but from across the room it looks better. I'm going to keep my hands off it and move on to the April challenge

I love her expression. It shows a satisfaction with ones self in a very subtle way.
