Re: Uncooperative Model Arranged on Dots
Well, I'll provide some feedback if no one else will. Being happy with a piece doesn't contradict an openness for thoughtful critique.
I like the painting overall. The flattened abstract background is enjoyable and the expression of the model is well captured. Not sure whether she is cheeky or shy, but the expression seems natural.
There are a few little distractions: the shadow under and beside the bridge of the nose, the shortened shape of the left nostril, and the angle of her left collar bone all seem a little exaggerated, but these don't hurt the expression of your work.
The one real concern in this composition for me is the tan coloured shape on her right side. If it is something draped over the shoulder, it appears either thin like a silk robe and too high, or thick like a terry cloth towel and the line between it and her body is too straight. Either way her right shoulder appears to be up close to her chin.
As Dave suggested, keep on keepin' on. Cheers!
