Re: Oil painting of a girl

I love the sheer fabric, nicely done!

Also I it's a bit flattened in a good way. I love to see that when mixed with some elements that have depth. Reminds me a bit of Tamara de Lempicka

Re: Oil painting of a girl

I love this painting, it's a beautiful style and well painted. Great transparency effects, colors, shapes, etc.

The composition is a little awkward though, the focal point (the face) is in a poor placement right at the very top, which is not where the eye wants to go.

Wow, this is a wonderful painting!

I've got to echo what everyone else has said about the sheer, nicely done! And I am really enjoying your style. Are there any artists in particular that influenced you towards this look?

Lovely line and rhythm. Sort of symbolic. Very peaceful. Well done.

Love those curvy lines throughout; the painting looks both lively, and peacefully floating in the same way. Beautiful paint handling here!

Re: Oil painting of a girl

Absolutely beautiful! Sensual yet pure, precise in drawing yet stylized, I would say musical, transparent, aerial!

I see the influence of Indian Art: are you Indian, Sir?

I like the palette and your confident well executed broad tonal range.
