I'm working on this commission, inspired to me by Bouguereau. I must to finish in next fifteen days. Any C&C welcome.

Hi BrunoB,
This looks great. The anatomy is spot on. I know Bouguereau used direct and indirect painting to achieve his results. Keep the shadows thin and the highlights thick. This already looks as good as anything Bouguereau ever did.

Thank you Bruce for the comment. I forgot technical details: oil on canvas 90x80 cm. I'd like to hear about composition.

Bruno, in my opinion your composition is working well and makes for a delightful painting. What I would like to see now is more tonal and colour depth in some of the shadows. I am thinking particularly of that area to her right of her left arm and her left hand. Perhaps I mean make use of modelling at the lower end of the tonal scale.
