Great start. The quality of the brushstroke really caught my eye.

XLNT! I can't imagine doing one eye at the time and matching color, etc. on the other eye. Hence, I do not do portraits, but am always amazed. Looking forward seeing your progress.

Re: Female Portrait (in progress)

@Fox eNova; normally I would do both eyes at the same time because the colors must match, but here she is holding a flower in front of her other eye, so i don't have to worry about that

Re: Female Portrait (in progress)

I really am envious of your brushwork!

If you feel, at any time, you'd like to do a really detailed and informative WIP (so we can learn how you do things ) I'm sure we'd all appreciate it immensely!
For instance - you seem to work fast - at least the brushwork seems to suggest speed and vitality!
What colours? and do you mix on palette or canvas?
How thin is the paint - water or medium?
Size of brush(es).

This is stunning! I agree with Maureen.

I hope you consider her suggestion. I'm sure I could learn a lot.
