Anatomy is good ( hands are spot on, good attitude about spending time on something so important) but I would love to see her eyes a bit larger. You have illustrated her sadness well, perhaps larger eyes woud have more impact. Don't know, it is just something personal I guess.

Your work is very inspirational. Take care!


It might be personal, but it's a good comment- Eyes are often what draw us in; If it were a portrait I wouldn't change it, but since it's an original character I would consider doing that if I reworked her.

My husband came up with a lot of conjecture about who she might be while I was working, but I always like to leave at least a little open to interpretation. In my mind, she's been raised on a farm, maybe in a distant world, and never really adapted to farm life. I guess she's a bit of a Dorothy-meets-Alice style dreamer. I like to think she's dreaming of being completed - that someday her song will be finished...

Thanks!

I love the movement and the light. The hands are spectacular!

I think the bottom half of her body is kind of small/short. Maybe some more refinement on the fence too?

Excellent painting!

You have handled the details very well and the emotional value of the painting communicates accordingly and exceptional work, thanks for sharing.

Awww, that's very very nice of you to say. One of my pieces from 2 years ago made choice and I would definitely prefer it have been this one instead, but it's ok. Thanks

I'm with you on the fence; I didn't want it to take away from the vines or the dress, but maybe some more texture would have popped it, and made it a bit more consistent with the level of detail elsewhere. As far as the legs go, she's sitting, so it should be foreshortened, but maybe some additional highlights/shadows on the dress would have made that more clear? What do you think would improve that area? Thanks for the crit
