This might not be the prettiest thing I've ever painted, but I think it could be the most honest. 48"X48", oil on canvas.

I love the way you did the hair it almost looks real the way the light hits it. Is this from looking at someone or imagination?

I was surprised to see this picture because I know someone that looks just like that! Nice work.

This was derived from a photo that I had shot during a fashion shoot about a year ago. I'm trying to get back into painting, and this is a practice piece.

So if this isn't the prettiest how come the prettiest art you've done isn't on here so I can look? ;)

I'll try to dig up something better. Problem is, I haven't a hard time looking at my work objectively. Sometimes, I think it's all terrible. Other times, I think I've created something brill.

Pretty good. I don't know if you're open to critique or not but this could be improved by removing the dark strokes from her chin and jawline. Maybe slightly darker tone for eye lids and neck.

Sure, I'm open to critique. It would be pretty foolish of me to post my work here if I wasn't. I think the biggest problem with this piece is that I'm trying to duplicate the photograph. Which is stupid, because it's like asking a cat to be a dog. I firmly believe that the most important trick to painting from a photograph is to throw away the reference photograph once the initial sketch is done. And I always tell myself to do that, and I never listen. It's like a lifeline that I can't let go of, because I don't trust myself or something. So I already have the neurosis down, so if I could paint worth a rat's ass, I'd be a freaking genius.
