Re: berna

I like how you painted this. Nice mood.

Very very beautiful. She is indeed beautiful, and you have captured this.

Re: berna

Good composition and proportions, however I am confused about your light source. Did you use 2 light sources? I ask this because her right side of her face is just as bright as the left side.

Re: berna

Very good work; specially interesting the treatment given to the dress, whose incompleteness helps in concentrating the attention on the beautiful face of the girl.
The brushwork is also interesting, spontaneous.
