continuing the work started yesterday morning
( http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/Forum21/HTML/004238.html )
here the suggestions on the right top of head/hair are followed a bit, and dornberg's suggestion to warm up the bottom of painting were followed a bit (using warm yellow which did not come out in the photo much) and I tried to get a bit more definition on the right cheek without blowing what had started.

I went further after seeing the chainlinks fence and changed the picture above to reflect the my new understanding.

She is alive and vibrant, Jerry! Fantastic!
The right cheek still belongs in shadow, methinks...

it looks very balanced
yet, a strange composition,
that is interestingly kind of off balance

Oh boy. Me and the old Alice had gotten to like one another before you put her through therapy. I have to say I liked your old background, hair and blouse better before you persuaded to "fix it up". Any way, you know I think your work is top rank as is this one. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

I </>will[/i] have another go at the cheek,
I hope the teetering asymetry (top heavy too)is working in and out of balance sort of.
it gets some extra movement there - maybe.
helping alice with math.
learning a lot.

si si senor
my younger daughter.
I painted another layer and I don't have the heart to post it.
but the yellow is all surround and the cheek is darker and some touch-ups.
The one in this thread looks like candy in comparison. the current incarnation has less colors at first glance.

less colours is not a bad thing
that would be what you started with give or take
post it or email it
your choice but i wanna see it

i still like this painting a lot. the portrait is working well. i can see you've been doing a lot of talking to the background. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Hey Jerry:

Thanks for turning me on to WetCanvas. As for Alice, IMHO, sometimes it's best to leave well enough alone. Both, before and after, look great to me!

Have a creative day!

Enjoyed the stages.Love your confidence with color. The first one is softer for a young girls portrait, but I like the drama in the last one maybe you are looking ahead. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Wonderful! In the newer version the background and face have the same value. I think you need to make the background a bit darker; now there is sort of a flip/flop effect between face and wall on our left.

henrik,
that's what my wife said to me.
except she added that she hates it.
I like to think of it as a single force (the whole canvas) and am glad at least one person notes that the background and foreground have a single value.
I'm gonna have to leave it for a while since I like it this way.

Merely a student of life!:)

'The artist is no more than a receptacle for sensations, a brain, a recording apparatus. But if it interferes, if it dares, feeble apparatus that it is, to deliberately intervene in what it should be translating, its own pettiness gets into the picture. The work becomes inferior....

Love this one before the modification, because of the more complex colors. Really like the criss-crossing diagonals, and the pensive look.
