Hi,

I used several ref. pictures for this one. My intent was to do curly hair, took me forever.

As usual, any copmment and advice are appreciated.

Oil, airbrush and MP Sticker spray, thanks MP.

It's an expressive portrait indeed!
Comments and advices? Hard to say within a personal style that would risk to change. Anyway I would start trying to widen the tonal range (I mean lighter and darker; You usually keep within a quite narrow one all around a middle tone).
Contrasts of different light and shadow areas are the basic way for us to perceive, rather than by color changes, so, within some natural ranges depending on lighting conditions, it's the best way to make a nice portrait even more incisive.

Thanks so much Pat and to you too Caesar. On shading, somehow I had a hard time on this painting, will try more next time. Thanks sincerely.:)

As Caesar says Jasmine: a bit more of shading, otherwise nice colors..:=)
