Here is my latest painting which is a portrait (obviously:rolleyes:) it is on canvas 30x40 cm (= 12x16 in.)

I'm fairly satisfied - about to call it finished - maybe a bit of cleaning up, but the again maybe not.

All comments & critiques most welcome.

Looking good Peter!
Because you have the sense of strong sunlight here, I'd try for some much brighter highlights in her hair and one or two small brighter catchlights on the teeth.

Has your trademark soft, painterly quality Peter.

Some good points made but overall I think you have captured her bubbly personality and charm. Nicely done.

Thank you, Val and Chammi.

Here is the final product.
If I do any more I think it will go downhill.
Thanks to everybody for looking and for your comments.
