I admire your brushwork, Alice. Where did you see this women? The image looks and feels European to me – bespeaking uncomplicated living on a summer day. I like her concentration and the way you've captured the light throughout. Nice!
I love the texture!
...a well executed painting! Nice.
Lovely lovely painting. I totally agree with Mardi (and everyone else who's commented).
Great! Very well done!
I'm loving the structure indicated by the brushstrokes. Have you ever looked at the work of John Asaro? Here's a link, http://nietofineart.com/artists/john-asaro/
I like the patchwork approach to the dress and the face, unifies the piece. The simple silhouette makes a bold statement for an understated concept, nice; and her expression is nicely twisted as well.
