Even being faceless, her face still conveys her feelings. I love the feeling of the painting.

Lulu, I have really learned something from this painting. I would have thought "faceless paintings" huh, what's the point? Seeing this painting, you have created something tender and beautiful. You can capture sensitivity without facial expression. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

DahlisMarie: Lulu is able to capture faceless people with feeling. I don't think I have seen a painting of Lulu's that hasn't appealed for the fact that it is faceless and that it is very emotional or relates to a very common topic (like shopping) that we all know very well.

I have just paid a visit to Noeleen's aka Lulu's website and this is really all knock out work:clap: :clap: As I said before, I have really learned something, looking at this art.

Thanks DahlisMarie, we all learn from each other, glad to know you visited my website!

Thanks again Carol, I'm glad I achieve my aim of conveying feeling without detail.

Diane, thank you too for taking the time to comment.

The pic here is darker than irl, took it in the evening light instead of daylight!
Too much of a rush lol

I think he would approve,


Like the dry brush finish on the dress.

Edited to say It may not be dry brushed but I certainly do like the way the dress is done.

Jeff, there is some dry brush work on the dress.
