    I'm new here; here's a pic of me :)

    This is "Self Portrait With Blue Hair" -- overall, I'm pretty pleased with it, although I find the negative space at the bottom right a little distracting. Not enough to do anything about it, though.

    Please feel free to visit my blog www dot nicelady dot net (sorry, I apparently haven't made enough posts yet to be allowed to make that a direct link) to see some of my "real life" acrylic paintings -- click on the "my paintings" category on the right hand side....

    I'm glad to have found my way to such a talented bunch!

    Lunamoth,

    I really like this a lot. It is a wonderful style. It shares much with a couple of my favorite artists... one is Wayne Thiebaud who did acrylics of san Francisco streets and then got off into desserts for some reason but anyway. and another painter is Janet Karam who does women on bicycles.

    Just wonderful colorings. I like the freedom to use unexpected hues when painting. Very well done. It is a beautiful portrait.

    It also looks great on your blog...

    I like very much your selfportrait, the colors, the expression.

    What an interesting mix of dimensionality (in the face) and impressionistic strokes elsewhere. I'm particularly struck with the color choices on your right forearm. Very dynamic. Welcome to here!

    Beautifully painted. You look like a real artist here.

    It's not easy to key a painting this highly and still manage a great portrait. This is wonderful.

    Personally I have no problem with any negative space, and can't see an area of offense. I guess that's one of the advantages of being the observer and not the creator.

    Really rich work.

    Hope to see more!
