    It's fabulous Dear Steve!!!! Love the expression between the ecstasy and the falling asleep, the Ocra color palette, the eyelashes, the materic effect on her hair... Phenomenal ciao

    That's what art's about, isn't it -- at some point it's about the relationship between the art and the viewer, sort of like speed dating. (D Akey)

    Love it! You might want to work on getting the hang od hair lines though. It's not much to know really. when hair falls across skin we can have an abrupt edge. But when we see the roots beginning to grow as with the top of the forehead, we see skin through the hair foe a short bit. So it's more broken as you did around the temple. That's working well. You may want to consider the brush strokes leading into the hair away from the skin rather than going crosswise. Just look at those details in other paintings for some different ways to handle it.

    Be that as it may, the colors are really nice. The overall look is really great. Love the forms, the features and all that. And the expression is very feminine. Very well done.

    Dear D Akey.... Hope your well and staying cool these days, got my windows open trying to snag a breeze rolling off the mountain into my little valley here.
    Thanks for the tips on this one....hair and forehead interaction, always had problems on some portraits....I will return to this one and finish it soon.
    Take care friend,
    Steve
