I love this!!!

I am a brand new member and have been skulking around in the background for about three months now but I HAD to post my appreciation for this piece.

She has such an enigmatic quality - stunning.

One tiny nitpick and is only a matter of personal taste; you have used such strong beautiful brush strokes everywhere but her face (which gives your painting its power), that I wonder if her neckline, arms and hands were also done in a more refined stroke would your painting not just shine?

In any case, congratulations, I think it is beautiful - you definitely have a winner. :clap:

You weren't stingy with your paint, and the effect is wonderful!

She's staring right back at me! So alive!

You've captured the feeling with mood and texture.

The shirt/dress is fabulous.

a good application of paint .. think the hands and face are too removed but that is only opinion .. maybe one pice of clothing rendered like the face and hands would tie it all togeather.

I hadn't noticed the mottled look around the neck and hands until palette brought that to light. My first disappointment was in thinking that once it's framed it may lose a lot or seem cramped. There is some great stroke expression and it is compelling as a portrait. The impressive clothing is outstanding.

There isn't anything left for me to say. You, guys, said it all. Many many thanks.
