Nicely painted but I wonder about what appear to be black artifacts on many of the brush strokes, they are very distracting and I have never had them happen when I use the Acrylic brushes. Edie

Edie, sorry you don't like the black showing. I used a completely black background so some of the black showed through the lighter brushwork. I also had to enlarge the image to work on it as it looks as though, by size anyway, that it was a Phone Pix. I really like her expression very introverted. Thank you for your comments! :)

Kirk, to me the black pick up gives her completion a blemished effect, this could be prevented by painting on a layer above the background and keeping the pick up colour button unchecked except where you can use the pick up for a more controlled effect. It is a very nice image otherwise!
