Love the idea .Which direction is the light coming from,there are some strong shadows but the body/face seems well lit.I like it.:)

Thanks, the light is coming from the top left hand corner so I guess I would need to add more shadows to the figure, its still very early in the painting just worked on the composition before I start to refine it. Its a piece I keep putting away for some reason. How much shadow do you think she would need??

Thanks again appreciate your time

Judging by the strength of the dark shadows i would say the same near the subject fading is you get further away.Ironically i would think that she would pretty much be all in the shadows but with highlights that show up on the outline areas.Sorry i am not very good at explaining,:crossfingers:

I like it, but I feel it would be stronger with rings of smoke.

I did try to put smoke in but i was struggling a lil bit so I have put this one a side until I feel more confident to get back on to it. Your definately right thanks.
