I love the looseness and delicate feel this has! The colors are wonderful, something about it just really keeps my attention and I love it!
well done:D

Dima, I really like the limited palette you looked like you've used on the flesh... I think I only see five colors.

The lack of any facial features works for me too. It gives the figure a little bit of anonyminity, like Degas used to do.

However, that being said, if I could add just a little suggestion, I'm not good enough to dip my toes into the open critique and comment... her, uh-mmmm, butt area is a little wide in the shadow. I'd suggest maybe calming the hard edge of the shadow out a little to show a little roundness coming into the light there.

It's a great nude! :clap:

Heya Dick - I did not know you were into pastels too!
Great picture! Really like the loose strokes.
I agree, though, that the arms are a bit thin and the fingers to pronounced to go with the rest of this full and painterly picture. Leave the fingers out or do the toes too then!

In all; great style.

Very Nice, Somehow she looks relaxed yet very tense, almost in pain.:clap:
