While your work is always quite serene and extremely lovely, there are a few things I would critique -- though take them with a grain of salt -- these are simply personal opinions.

#1 being I find the back of her head to be quite... small? If that makes sense. Like, compared to the size of her face, the way the hair falls behind her doesn't quite add up to me, proportionally. I mean, the actual execution of the hair and how it falls is flawless, I just would've added more, I suppose.

..Actually, I think that was my only negative critique...

Everything else is wonderful -- I personally adore her whole delicate posture, especially the hands. I am in love with how you do your hands. I love the colors used on her body and her hair. I feel like she's some kind of fairy who protects innocence..

Again, this piece is solid! Lovely! Keep up the good work!

Great work! I love how you used the colors, it is somehow muted and it compliments the subject looking subdued and melancholic, but weirdly enough, it still looks a bit vibrant, if you get what I mean. Great detail work especially on the hair. (those very delicate thin hair lines!!) It makes me want to know the story behind this artwork. Although the subject and composition isn't new, the use of colors stand out, especially considering you used acrylic paint. Great control, great job!

Looking forward to seeing more of your work in the future! Thanks for sharing your artworks!

The whole piece is amazing, but I particularly love her hands!  I have not tried hands yet. I am just a beginner and happy that my faces look like they belong to the human race... :)   I really love her face too, with the straggly hair.  Very impressive.

Your use of pastels and watercolor never cease to amaze me, along with your amazing ability to capture human anatomy. :)

Well done. I really love the way you did the water and the colors you chose. The skin tone looks pretty good as well. It's beautiful work. Even your hair and hands look great. I would love to see a background on this, but even just the white looks fine. Keep it up.

Very subtle and sensitive use of colors. Well balanced, and I love the treatment of the hair.
