    At any latitude ... and longitude, charming ladies are masterfully portrayed by Your brush, dear Geoff. Katie-Coops too, with her passion for Japanese subjects, will appreciate it very much for sure.

    What an awesome painting, Geoff. You have emerged as the best painter of portraits in these forums (in my opinion). Such attention to detail. Perhaps you will share a tutorial with the rest of us...
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Cesare was right Geoff, I adore this painting. The eyes are brilliant as is the painting
    Sometimes...I remember better with my eyes closed

    Thanks everyone for your kind words, glad you like it , I know many folks like to see a much looser painting but for me having spent so many years in photography I like to see detail. I admire the artists that can actually make a painting look just like a photograph, not that skilled myself.
    The hair in this one was a real challenge and cannot believe how many hours I spent getting it to look something like.
    Regards Geoff

    Exquisite work Geoff! Not only the Geisha but the background as well.

    Thank you for that, I must admit that one of my weaknesses has been backgrounds, kind of hoping I did not have to do one.
    However following advice from miss Katie coops I think I am coming to grips with backgrounds and the important roll they play in a finished painting.
    Cheers Geoff

    Very nice portrait. Yes and thats true, hairs are not so easy to made, there are good tutorials here too, but thats a lot of work.

    I'm sorry for that, but for my self I try to make hairs with the Flamepainter, my next artwork is alos coming soon .... Some days ago I did made hairs with that small programm. The other parts I will made with artrage, also some additional hair structures/lights and so on. Would be nice, if Artrage could have in the next version(s) maybe also so a nice/similiar tool.

    wow really one of your best efforts Geoff..! the face is flawless as usual but the hair and background composition and how it relates to the figure is working really well in this one.
