Re: A Portrait Study - WIP

Beautiful expression. Love that there are no sharp outlines anywhere.. like looking at her through textured glass.. nice choice of colours for her skin tone and background. They go very well together.

I'm not sure I can pick up exactly what the refinements are. I'd leave it now.

Very nice portrait!

Lots of mood, and I like that wistful expression.

Great mood with this portrait with it's low-key and soft edges!
You may double-check the some of the vertical placements below the brows-

Re: A Portrait Study - WIP

Hi Ken! Thank you so much for taking a look and giving me your suggestions!

Ok, I think I see a problem with the model's left eye... I think it needs to be raised in the eye socket a little. Do you mean something other? You mentioned "vertical" placements... I'll go back this evening and try and make those adjustments.

Thank again for your help, Ken!
