Very direct and clear in intention. It's a good message.

Keeping the palette simplified allows the painter to simply focus on the forms. It's pretty good overall. I think if you made the noses a little clearer, it would help. I'm not saying to feature them with lots of detail, but rather to keep it similar to the handling of the rest of the head, just a little more specific to describing the nose form. I would have to see the original you are painting from to know specifically. But that's a general thought based on looking at this.

But, overall a very good painting that shows your generous heart very clearly, Silvy. Very nice work.

Thanks dear D Akey:), the original is on little calendar and now I have not scanner for show it.
The problem is the excessive use white to create a wet look on the outlines....and lost details.

A bit of a departure for you, Dear Silvy, and one that you have made to speak in a clear voice.
