fabulous collection of orderly colored shapes.
the ruddy shadow is a great bridge between hair, skin outfit and background.

I absolutely love this! Its warm to look at. Lets the viewer tell a story. I love the shapes and color.

To me, she looks like a ballet dancer who has had a hard day of working out and is ready to retire for the evening but she can't because the younger dancers are still pushing forward hard and if she quits now she won't get that feature spot in the show. Sorry for rambling...

I love the simplicity of your style...perhaps you should be the teacher?

The slight tilt of the model's head .............elegance personified. The lady looks as though she enjoyed the experience of posing for the class. Brushwork is beautiful. Nice work.....

In ghetto terms (where I live) this painting would be called, "fat". very nice stuff.

Composition is perfect IMO. Color mixing and use is very nice. Each area seems to have just the right amount of tint/tone and I admire the light that seems to be created in the background.

have fun,

Bocote

wow!


i really like this.. and strangely enough, the thing i like the most is the skin tone, especially on the right side of her face! thats odd i know...perhaps its because i am +trying to work with skin tone in my own paintings! nicely done! i agree with artbabe..you should be the teacher!

Jerry, colored shapes is what I'm after.

Luzie, thank you.

Jim, :)

Andy, she did!

Pam, time management;)

Gin, :)

Bocote, fat.:cool:

Ceu, just started using black in mixtures...I have seen a huge difference:)

Wayne, Wayne, Wayne! LOL.

Soulsketcher, :D we naturally focus on what we struggle to accomplish I think.
