I like it, is really beautiful, and have a nice texture. Is well done. Excellent posture and perspective.
The face is amazing, looks like it's calm and the facial features are well located. The nose and eyelids looks some rare, as a excess of paint in this zones, but in general looks good.
The hair is perfect and looks really realist, maybe some little strands of hair on the forehead would be more natural. Her lips looks wet and give it a good aspect, if had a little more of red-pink paint looks better.
Excellent posture of her hands, are well painted and the brushstrokes of color on her palms, I think make her look innocent. The cloths are nice and go harmonious with the painting.
That spot of paint in the middle looks like a sheet of silicone colors. Go very good with the scene.

Beautiful work like always <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I like the depth of the image, how the white and black creates a nice balance against each other. The use of contrasts without it going overboard. How the use of color gives a soft but very vibrant and beautiful painterly effect. I feel the picture is dreamy and poetic. At the same time fragile, but powerful. I love that you get the feeling that you look through a sort of veil that gives more life to the face. The person in the picture has a very vibrant personality, which I know not everyone can achieve when they paint / draw people as it can quickly become a bit monotonous in its expression. But I think you bring up both emotions and techniques in a very beautiful and good manner.

The contrast of the dark top not only mirrors the dark values in the hair, but also contrasts nicely with the background. At first the fading into the background of the arms distracted me, but after spending more time, I believe it ads to the mystic of the image. The colour variations [especially the blues and violets] not only lead your eye to enjoy the whole piece, but also enhance the skin tones and add such depth. The detail of the fine, looser hairs, contrast very nicely with the volume of the face and hands. The wash over the face is a brave element that does not take away from the figure, but adds more depth. All this...in my humble opinion...

The most beautiful thing about a piece of art is that you can construe it. For me, it looks like she is throwing her translucent mask from her face, letting the purity of living enter her actulity. Beautiful, indeed!

Is it a metaphor for saying that all your thoughts you have in your head are simply that, just thoughts? (Hence the parenthesis?)
