Hi Pat, this is a really nice one. You know if you broke this up into different panels it would be a great wall accent Crop each section as a seperate painting. this would even be a great Japanese room divider. Well done...well done!;)

Nice one, Pat. You really have the shape of the girl's head down.

Just a wee bit more softness and precision to the marks on the girl herself. Folds in garments are important, and the rouge in her cheeks is a trifle smeared. Not sure if it's the tools your using that creates that slightly coarse, sketchy quality, and whether it's a matter of building up a tone slower.

Working method creates a look no matter whichever method one uses. There are tell tale marks that identify how it was done. All I can do is suggest experimenting with the tools for an afternoon to see what kinds of effects you can get. I would be looking for smoother but not blurry, as a way to expand your range.

But like I said, your set-ups in your pictures are great. And the overall is perfect. So it's now a matter of developing a little more finesse with your marks. Think back to when you were a maiden getting ready to go out on a date with someone you really wanted to impress. How did you do your hair and makeup? That's the kind of attitude you want to bring to your pictures, I think.

This painting has a great feel. I was surprised by Cartuneman's comment. That's a great idea I would never have considered. I learned something from that too.

I agree with the rest of your friends. This is very well painted, the screen is nice, but the placing of the figure, is just right for me. :):):)

DAkey, thanks again for your input, I will do some more experimenting with the tools and blending as you suggested and will do my best to improve
