Well I thought I'd seek out another one of my duds for your entertainment. I kinda like the cloth and the background but the rest really flopped. I still have trouble with eyes and noses and all the rest so I'm sure I'll have plenty more to share in the future. Smile

I love the colors! You should try her again some day!
I need to go dig a painting out of the basement - hope I can find it. It was so awful, I was too embarrassed to put it in the trash where someone might see it. Your painting will look like a masterpiece next to this dud!

I think I'll give this one another go some day! I like the colors as well. I usually don't like painting the same thing but I've discovered if enough time has passed I actually can get excited about painting one that I've already painted. This one was painted about a year ago.

I'm looking forward to seeing your submission Callie!

It all looks great. The only problem I see is with the right eye not being placed just right. I'd leave the rest alone. The glow of the skin is outsatanding.

Hey Janet you've got a good painting here, don't trash it. Needs some work but quite minor. The right eye definitely, but I think the size of both eyes needs adjusting they don't seem large enough. The right nostril flare needs to balance the left.
Sorry, but I find the headscarf floating up to the right hand corner a distraction. It's removal and replacement with just a hint of the scarf end by her neck will I think give you a powerful painting. Please don't take offence but I do think it is worth the effort.

Thank you Jack for all your help! I actually gave this one to my daughter because she wanted it but I'm tempted to ask for it back which I won't do because that would seem rude. Live and learn. I see what you mean about the scarf. If I do a redo I'll crop it differently and find a better composition. Smile
