Very pretty! I love the detail in her face!

I like the way she made you the potter and you made her the pot.
the canvas was the wheel I guess.
I still see the marks of the potters hands on the neck of the blouse/sweater.
Thanks BlossomArt, jerryW, for your comments. Yes, it seems pottery can be a messy business at times. regards, alva
...a detail of the nose and mouth areas. The palette of colors for this painting were- white, yellow ochre, burnt sienna, napthol red, and raw umber, pretty simple. regards, alva

your speed and paint handling are incomparable alva. you capture such expression with a minimum of stroke and color. great.
beautiful face, alva, I don't have words at this time to describe the feeling that I got looking at her for a while:)
Thank you Aurora, ej, ceu, glad you liked it. regards, alva

Beautiful painterly work!
Maybe it's just me, but her eyes not in the same level...

Excellent. I'm glad you showed us the detail. What happens when you take 60 days?:)
Thanks Gerak and Anthony! Gerak, yes, I will have to correct that when the present layer dries. Anthony, maybe someday I will show some my stuff like that. regards, alva

expression with the strength of rocks
tight values and great color
