The likeness is great. I think you could use a little more color though. Seems a little washed out...

always stylized ,,, these women of yours just seem to be fairylike.

this one seems to bit duller than most: sad colors, made me think of a drug-sick woman in a rehab, at the lowest point in her young life....

Thanx as always for sharing this with us

agree she looks like in rehab, or waiting for the effects to start - which is why this is an INTERESTING painting - has more character than your typical figure. I like it very much, more than many of your other works. I like your painting better than the original. Also your background doesn't compete with the character, as the original background does. However, I really think that as you are painting a painting, you should title it as a copy after the artist.

thanks guys
it's fabulous to me how many diff emotions have been seen in her expression
it's like an ink blot study
and yes, for public display i credit the original artist 'a study of:'

Rather than veins on her hands she looks like a cutter. The original looks like a model, yours looks like a person. Authentic in herself. I simply see her dreaming of a better situation. Could be anything. Or a situation that she just had, or just thinking.
