This piece is really nice.
But the BG and the figure are not mixing well, maybe some details in the dress would give the figure more weigh... I don't know... maybe more shadow in the rocks and a little less texture will pull it back, but now they look challenging each other for the main rol, and the BG is winning the match.
Appart, the flowers needs a lot more work, they look too "sketched", like if you got tired of painting and you just finish there.
The BG is demanding you to work the rest of the piece with a lot more detail and dedication.

As your attorney, I advise you to take a hit out of the little brown flask in my shaving kit.

Nice work marta

i like it alot

I commented on this piece at GFX, but I like it so much Ima have to comment again This is your best piece in terms of skin tones and contrast; Having said that, I think the flowers are in desperate need of more depth, they appear way to flat, especially compared to the rest of the figure.

Still 5 star work regardless, it's just too good I tell ya!

Looks very well! Very strong, it's quite splendid! Au contraire to some people before me, I really can't say I mind the way the body and background blend. One thing that you could, perhaps, think about is changing shadows; her jaw is reasonably shadowed, but her breasts are not, even though the dress slopes back. If you'd add some stronger shadows on those as well as her flowers, you could move the image into a bit of a more desolate, 'starving for light' mood by accentuating the difference between light and dark. Otherwise, you could also make her jaw lighter, making it more hopeful. The same for the hand; it's a bit in-between dark and light right now, chosing could make the image stronger - even though it's got a nice soft feeling to it currently, which would be a shame to loose.

Other than that, you've got a lovely sense of composition and style - it actually shows a beautiful woman in glooming glory. Your technique is very good too... I quite love it.

Very nice image! I did find one thing that bothers me, that no one seemed to the closeup of her right hand, the thumb looks way out of proportion to the fingers, it looks too long, almost as long as her pointer finger. It just strikes me as odd is all.....

I love this beautiful painting. I think I already commented on this paitning on GFX, but I just wanted to say that I don't believe a painter of your calibur would do anything like a "paint-over." And I don't want to offend anyone, but for those who keep insisting that your painting is a paint-over, or part paint-over, green is not your best colour.
