I had a chance to begin a painting tonight (yay!). Another portrait of my wife.. As you can see, it's a work in progress. I started with watercolor and am finishing with pastel. C&C welcomed!

Yes what is the principle object here, her back or her face ? If it is the face I think it needs more emphasis.

Otherwise I could also say, beautiful, charming or I like it.

Thx Charles! I'll keep that in mind going forward. I'm still in the early phase. I want to bring more details to her face, I think..

This is so nice, Michael, although I do prefer the previous image with more definition to her face. I'm sure you could pick out the profile of her back from a hundred others but I like the element of expression we get from her beautiful, downcast eyes.

Thank you, Donna! Yes, I agree. I've redone the face so many times, I've kind of lost my way... (sigh)
