Love it GB. The look on her face seems to say that she would rather be off somewhere else. Very well painted:)

Excellent job, gb. It has so much complexity to it, I keep looking at it again and again. Wonderful low key and dark background, brush stroke texture, polka dot humor that a child would pick to wear, dramatic full face eye contact and hand gesture. And the bright red hair sets off the blacks and greys wonderfully.

It's a wonderful work. Just two minor faults: the visible elbow is too large and the external border of the left arm needs a bit of definition to depart from the background. Otherwise, perfect.

Wonderful, masterful painting ... of a slightly disquieting girl though.

An intriguing portrait of a young girl who seems to exhibit a posture of
distrust and defense. She is uneasy and protective, an emotion that is
well presented with exquisite artistry. Beautifully painted! :)

Thank you for your comment. It's the first time I create a painting from dark canvas- it gives me a 'Dutch' feeling. It works well. Hand gesture is important in this painting (I dont paint hand often). Her right hand was not shown due to my lazyness... but as you say, the work has much complexity to it, Im afraid another hand will overdo it.

Thank you for your suggestion!
Im not happy with her dress myself. It feels too conceptual.

Thank you for your comment. The fact is that I was in my grands home last week. Its boring, and its hot. The city is full of people. I hate that place..
