Love that hair!
Wow. YOu did a great job on it.

The whole portrait is well done, but one thing is missing: The highlights on the face. I'd apply some bright lites along the bridge of the nose. Maybe some above the eyebrows....

Hello Shey

First Portrait? Really nice job!!!

Great hair, most artists wouldn't go through being so articulate.

I Just recieved my new Unison pastels and I am going to try my first portrait. I have the hard Nupastels for the detail and now the soft ones for a butterly addition.

I tried doing a portrait in oils and have had a hard time getting more color into my faces. It is tough to do. This is what I see in your piece, a need for more reds, oranges, purples and blues...
Whew! Hope you don't mind my thinking, been there! done that!

I don't know if I would change this one, just an idea for your next one. She is so cute !
