    Great choice of palette and canvas...i like this one !!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Very luscious, Pat! A color treat as everybody noted.

    One thing I'll mention is her shoulder/neck transition is a little under-articulated. It looks a little steep into the head. And there's the challenge about how natural one wants to be with the anatomy.

    One could fuss with the figure ala Pino in taking it that direction where part of it is rendered out more, where it polishes that which you want as a focal point. Or one could let it all get a similar treatment. You seem to be leaning toward a natural anatomy. So that's what you want to keep in play as you're working with this style. On the other hand, you could go abstract as well. Or a combination between the two. Just keeping the ideas floating to give you options as you go down this path.

    There's so much good stuff going on here. Looking great. She has some of the character of the Muse in this colorful context.

    ... hi pat ... I'm catching up, I've been studying how to use emoticons (that one just got misplaced, hehe) ...

    ... have you any interest in Fauvism? ... you know, for example, the early paintings by Matisse, where he was daring enough to paint a green stripe down the center of his (otherwise lovely) wife's face? ... your bold handling of light and color in this painting seems to go a tad beyond impressionism ...
