It's a wonderful painting with a lovely kid!
Maybe just a little undefined for my sight to fully enjoy.
Maybe You could try to duplicate it and set the upper layer blending to multiply and to an appropriate transparency percentage to let me see it more defined without losing the marvellous colors luminosity ...

Very nicely done Netta.
As Caesar said, a little more definition of the child, is the only thing I'd like to see. His idea of using the multiply function might well do the trick.
Fine job. :):)

You captured the essence of her personality, and that is an excellent thing. Well done :)

Thanks for the advice, except I am new at artrage and don't know how! It's all french to me ! LOL can someone explain step, by step as i don't even use my "Layers" yet because I don't understand.:o

Dear Netta (is it from Antonietta?:p), just go to the layer mask (on the right), press the menu button and duplicate layer. Now look for layer blend (modes) in the scroll menu and select multiply. Everything's gonna look re-inforced.
I hope I was able to translate a little from French ... hopefully for You not to Italian!:D

Thanks all, Ceasar ! my name is Vannetta. i have so much to learn about artrage, still overwhelmed !

... so You've got a nice Italian name anyway! :p
Vanni or Vanna (masculine and feminine) are a frequent Middle Age alternative form of Giovanni and Giovanna (practically John masculine and feminine). The desinence -etta is a form of endearment of that name (indicatively like Johnnie), but not the diminutive which would end -ina.
I hope You found what I told you. Should You need a step by step just tell me ...
Here's an example of what You would get in a second. It further demonstrates that You did a great work!
