This is wonderfully done Woody. Great skin tones, smile translates to the eyes and you did an outstanding job on the most difficult part of a portrait, teeth.

I'm glad you mentioned that because I was very particular about the teeth. I started with them and although they are not THAT detailed, I fought to make sure I had enough work on the edges and gums so that the teeth did not look like a bar of soap which happens a great deal with drawings and paintings of pretty smiling ladies with darkish skin tones (the contrast and all....)

I did a lot of work on the face (about four hours worth) and then blended out the detail for the clothing with larger, less detailed brush strokes which only took about forty-five minutes. :)

Yes I captured her....but after the painting was done I let her out of the cage and released her. :lol:
