Not Titled C&C Welcome

Think this one is about done. 11x14 oil on linen. Portrait of an excellent model who has sadly since moved away from the area. C&C welcome.

Re: Not Titled C&C Welcome

pretty great all around! I would soften that jaw "line' of shadow form and really turn it - going a fraction lighter, then lighter then lighter as it turns to the light.. - nice work! - kevin

Re: Not Titled C&C Welcome

Really nice, you're right the model is a stunner, I have one teeny niggle - the line of her neck is so straight it looks "wrong" on the horizontal, if you turn your head, it looks ok but not quite right, so I think it is a composition thing rather than anatomical, you just don't expect to see a straight line there??? Only my first reaction, otherwise fab!!! Well done Jeni

Re: Not Titled C&C Welcome

Thanks kevin, I'll give it a shot. good advice.

Jeni, that neckline was bothering me too and i tried a few different things. It's better than it was, and my teacher signed off on it, but I'm going to put a layer of galklyd on and look again. thanks for your input!

Re: Not Titled C&C Welcome

I really love this, but I feel like I should be able to see more of the whites of her eyes.
You've done a great job with it, bravo!

Re: Not Titled C&C Welcome

Jen echoes my thoughts, she beat me to it though.
Just a few little issues, but it's a lovely painting just as it is!
