Put this in Critiques, but not a lot of feedback, so thought I'd put it here, too.
16" x 12"
Any thoughts/critique/suggestions/praise most welcome. :)

Very good drawing!
The skin tones and clothing I believe need to be better defines. Skin is a mixture of many colors, green, blue, red, yellow, etc.
I would try glazes to give the painting more depth.
Keep up the good work.
I must of missed this one. Really nice!:)

Reminds me of my "nana" who is now gone.
My nana never wanted to be called grandma.
But I always felt special because I had a nana instead of a grandma. She was very beautiful, very special, and very loving just like the one in your painting.
That's what this piece brought to my mind.:)
It's a sentimental piece.

this is very nice; sentimental, without being cloyingly (sickeningly) sweet.
But, the background really bugs me. It seems to be some undefined space, maybe a ridge of tall grass, with hazy sky beyond...doesn't seem to fit the subject at all, IMO.
The skin tones seem fine to me. (I think any 'chalkiness' we see is more likely due to the scan; the close-up looks far less 'chalky' than the full image scan.)
