I hope you and your family are well.
This is a very good portrait indeed.
There is much character and tenderness in here eyes.
Lovely lost and found edges

Hi Trevor,
I am very much encouraged by your comment, this is the 2nd portrait I made of this girls, because the first one was not good! This came out better. Thank you for visiting and the encouraging words!

Mariano.. Nicely done ! Yes, it is an interesting limited palette that you have chosen for this portrait. You have still managed to keep a "loose feeling" to this piece in many places. I like that very much. The "lost edge" on the long line of the neck (under ear) is very effective to the eye.

Hope your summer is going well.

Take care..

Hi Frank,
Thanks a lot! I am very happy for Your comment. It's a Robert Liberace pallette, that I am studying. Or trying to, as there are many possibilities and need to put more time on it. I am new to portraits, a challange that i like. Ma vacation period is over and went very well, Thank you , all the best Frank, Mariano
