Suitably creepy (what a sad story). I like the talismans around the well, and the highlights on right arm, shoulder, and knee. The red dress is the best part, especially with how it folds and drapes around the knee (I really like that portion for some reason). I also like the sinister look of the eyes, not glowing, but high contrast against the deep shadows of her eyes. very nice. great job.

Eerie and poignant, Michael - a tricky balance to strike - really, really strong work man. I love the blue-tinged palette, and her pose is just spot-on.

Wow. Magnificent painting - Gorgeous.

It's a shame a beauty like that wants to commit suicide. I rather have her on my arm, than on the bottom of the well, you know what I mean.
