Acrylics on 20 x 20 inch canvas

I'm back after a long painting lay off with a new type of paint. This is Old Holland New Masters, me having been an oil painter. It may be that I forgot to buy an opaque pigment such as Terra Rosa, or just lack of confidence with the brush for the time being, but I've used a lot of thin paint in many layers. This does give a sense of presence in the eyes on painting.

Mike - it is great to have you back with your paintings of lovely oriental ladies. The eyes are perfect - the little red veins in the white areas, the colour of the eyes and the shape - just great.
