Re: portrait

Bold and fresh. I like the composition. Under the right eye from viewer's view, there is a hard edge that could be softened? The transition from dark shadow.
I like this portrait.

Re: portrait

Yes, this is a bold approach and I like it too. I agree with Derek about the line - and to my eye, there are a few that need just a tiny bit of softening on the right side (as viewed) - to be more like the transitions on her forehead. But you have a very distinctive style so perhaps your own judgement is better than mine. Anyway, it's a terrific piece.

Re: portrait

You have a nice style. I wonder if you have switched the light and shade on the neck on purpose ? The same on the nostrills. That looks a bit illogical to me but maybe it is artistic freedom. Walter

Re: portrait

Great clear color and values- it has a nice feel! Very good suggestions from Derek, Annie, and Walter. I can only add the reflected lights are a bit to light.
