Beautiful. Your style is incredibly likeable, I love the brush strokes that make up her hair. Peaceful, yet dreary at the same time. +fav :)

slightly desaturated colors, and the choice of colors as well still maintain a glitch of serenity as opposed to the overall downcasting atmosphere

loving it :nod:

Hello,
Would it be weird to say that I welled up inside when I saw this peice? My eyes watered and I allmost cried. I wish I knew why. There was just something I saw in it that moved me. Thank you for that.

nice....VERY nice! :clap: did you buy all the supplies yourself and did it at home or was it like some kind of art class thing (since i dunno if your in one or not but we do this sort of thing in my art class in school).

how long did it take to make this? :+fav: :D

I usually work on several paintings at the same time so it is always hard to tell, it took me about a month. but with oils you spend a lot of time waiting for a layer to dry before you can work on the next one. so i guess time spent actually working at the canvas was 25 to 30 hours.

Excellent painting. Interesting composition, too. Facing her out the left edge of the painting creates a very unbalanced image, but in this case it works well. She looks like someone who's trying to get out of the frame.

AnnaGilhespy Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2006
as I usually use myself as a model, and seeing as i can't be in the image and behind the canvas at the same time, i use photographs. I can paint from life, but it is a time consuming effort so i prefer to paint from photographs.

Beautiful composition! Very smoothe and easy flow to the painting. I have not had a chance to work with oils yet, just acrylics and watercolors. But what I see makes me want to take a class. Keep up the good work *runs to check out the rest of the gallery*.
