I love almost everything about this
except the intensity of the books
Because the colors are so strong they detract
from the COI.

Just a wash over them to dull them
would make her pop out aboot more

Your portraits so strong and well done

Strong portrait, agreed. I enjoy the color choices and the general expression coming from the figure.

There are some anatomical aspects which I find odd and I am not sure if they are intentional. At first, I thought that the arm on her right side was coming towards the viewer until I noticed that it is in parallel to the one in the front. I think this impression is mainly instantiated from the reflections near her elbow.

Another thing, I recently got back to the habit of doing a pre-sketch with a water-solvent marker I borrow from my kids, just the basic lines defining the eye/nose/mouth marker, as in, e.g. (German only, but I think the pics are self-explanatory)


The eyes seem off the angle, I think the one on the right should be far lower.
