great work, beautiful colors and nice eye for detail. I think the blue on the lady's face is too much, making her look sort of dead-skinned.

An interesting juxtaposition of backgroung and foreground character. If you are trying to show that she is floating above the water you got it. However, if you are creating a montage and the background is just another element I would suggest that you make the B/G a bit more monotone. Nice pix.

Well, in first place I would like to thank for all criticize that you did, this helps me a lot to grow stiller as artist.
This was my first painting using Painter 8, it is really more difficult of working than Photoshop 7, because I cannot open many layers, because if no, the computer begins to be slow.
But that is cool, because it is more similar to the process of painting in the paper, where you cannot make many mistakes, CRTL+Z doesn't exist in the paper.... hehehehehe.
Hey Mark, I liked yours criticizes, because really the scenery behind, is alone one more element, she is not leaving the water, I should really have made the scenery more monotone, I will make this in the next paintings.
And, I entered in your site, you have a very good work also. but you have to put the images in your site, larger, I want to see the details of your painting.
And as for the blue in her face in the bottom, I really exaggerated, but it is that really I am still learning how to use the painter, I promise that in the next painting it will be better, well at least I will try.
Well, thanks to all and soon I will put more images of this project.

A BIG hug to all,
