This was a tough one to do.. Not sure why but she fought me a lot. :fight: There are quite a few mistakes I saw once I was editing the picture I have to fix.But in the end I did learn a lot. Comments and Critiques are welcomed.

Overall this is nicely done. I can see that her right wrist and hand definitely gave you a good bout  :fight:   Looks a bit like the thumb is where the pinky should be!  ???     Can see a few challenges in the face. The ewer looks great, colouring and shading very well done.  O0   Again, overall.... great job Robyn.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Definitely shows great effort, Robynann.  Agree with all Val said.

Best part is that it was a learning experience,

I like the overall colours of the painting. Hands are difficult for sure. Hope you can correct them. Well done!

Don't know if its my eyesight, or if there's something off with the 'T' of the eyes and nose.

I'm seeing a 'halo' on the bottom of the dress.  The impression I'm getting is something red spilled on it rather than it being the print of the fabric.

All else looks good.  Well done.  :)
