Thanks, everyone, for taking the time on this. I kept looking at her and just couldn't be reconciled to the China-doll, porcelain look of her face... so I wiped off the canvas........... No, not really! :evil: I just reworked it a little. The problem (to my eye) was the sharpness of her eyebrow in contrast to the impressionistic look of the rest; yes, this painting is slightly blurry, but not nearly so bad as the photo. Sorry, I just tried to get a better pic to no avail.

Cath, just because I have 5,000,000 colors to work with doesn't mean I always do. ;)

Pat, you're a gas! Thanks for the morning chuckle. :D

Best regards,

Wes
