LadyAlba, this is great! I especially like your treatment of the lips. I think that your teriffic image would benefit from a more earthy, textured background. Nice work!

I love this one Lady Alba. He has such an expression in his eyes, ......sort of hope and sadness at the same time:) Well done!

I like the mood and 'character' it has, very strong piece .

.....Something bothered me.... it was the muted tones, muddy look.... so, i went and did this test...
...i unveiled some brushstrokes, so i stopped there....

See how this cut out looks ....

Thank you Joel, Gloria, Julie and Jet. Redid the background how is this?
I tried this with very little blending (for me anyway lol got a ways to go and yes there are brushstrokes on the large one) I had to downsize it alot to post it here. ;o)

Good job on the bkrnd. Now it looks painted and the style works with the subject. Dramatic painting Alba.
