lovely painting  :clap: :clap:   may suggest to add more value (shading) on the right side of the blouse, assuming the light comes from the left side and maybe a bit of hightlight on the top of the head and maybe a bit more on the left.

I love the style of this portrait! You accomplished your goal with the hair by the way. If you decide to highlight that dark hair, try a blue of the right value rather than gray. Great expression!

This is really good.

Except for the too thick curly bangs in the middle, the rest of the hair look good.

Love the pouty lips!

Bring up the bottom of the eyelids just enough to cover the whites under the eyeball.

I like it!


A day without art is like a day without sunshine.

wow.. you are improving, eyes are much much much better on this one..  but Mea, has the right idea on the bottom lids, so is hair much better, but the hair on forehead is a bit too wide,  and maybe some lighter highlights in hair.. I know others said this already,  :)  but you are sure improving!
