What some might dismiss as messy strands of hair have body, luster, curvature in their darkness. Darkness is the true mirror of light. The titled head with its bright features might seem an afterthought; face is central to the whole yet its precise, simple definition seems too facile. It would be a mistake to discredit the artist. A talent that can make the most out of the least is literally most creative. But we should focus on the beauty of the subject. There is literally nothing elaborate about her. Her beauty emerges from the simple curves of the face shaping lips, nose and eyes that are above all engaged.
Thank you very much for yet another beautiful critique, dear akarra
I'm putting the critique on my main blog along with a link to your painting, and then I'm putting this thing on facebook and all over the Internet. Let's see if we can make you world famous.
Can't thank you enough, don't think I even deserve
Yes of course, thank you very much I will put it on my fb page as well
The critique is on my facebook page, stumbleupon, reddit & tumblr. It links directly back to the painting.
I'll let you know how things go. Hopefully it'll go viral, but I've been doing this for years and that has happened exactly once.
