That lighting is terrific. It looks as though a spotlight is behind her. I like the way it filters through her hair. I like that palette. What is it about blue/orange together? The deeper yellow in the swirls of blue pulling off the lighter in her hair is good. I don't know wwhat else you could do, really. The white outline is what gives it a light source, the outline of the arm crossing over her belly negates that somewhat. If I were to do anything, I think it would be adjust that to accomodate the source. But that's just me.

Thank you so much for your reply Tam! You always give me some of the best advice! (did I ever tell u I am from NC too?)
I didnt originally see the line as the light source but now that u mention it u are right...perhaps I should darken the shadows on her front arm?

Tam...is this the change u were suggesting?

I like that better!! But, you know, there's that bottom, that one inward breast, and the inner arm.... I don't know that I'd erase the line totally, or just deepen it. I like the way you've deepened the shadows on the forearm. I would try it both ways and see which one YOU like!!

I looked at it the second way for a while and decided that taking out all the front lines would break the rythym of the "Dance" so to say so I added the lines back in..I may do something diff later...not sure yet

that's the beauty of it all: it's your art. Your expression. It all depends on what you're going for and what you're saying. I personally like the second deeper shadows the best. I mean the movement was still clarified, but it became more like a silhouette native type in front of the fire and all that, to me. You could've really gotten imaginative and to those deeper shadows of orange blended some of the blue background in to even deepen the shadows more and pull it all together. Like I say, it's all how you look at it. I like it as is too. It's Jenn. :) And either way I get to enjoy great art and you get to show it!! Can't beat that one!

I like it! This one has a lot of 'Wham!' just what I look for in an abstract.
Thanks for posting it.
