All of the white space behind her is a bit "blank" for lack of a better word. A darker color would make the foreground image pop. Also a little darker shading on the right side hair next to the cheekbone and at the bottom on the chin would add more depth. I would also darken the lid a bit above hthe left eye as it looks slightly brighter than the right. Your use of color in her hair is very nice but the gray tone towards the upper right (her right) seems to be out of place. If you dropped that gray the yellow edge of her hair would balance nicely with the left side.

Lovely nonetheless
What do you think?

I love the overall use of color. The light, whimsical tones balance out what I feel to be a somber severity in the stark whiteness of her face. I love how the colors of her hair blend together and can still stand alone. The blues and purples mellow out the vividness of the yellows. Overall, this is a beautiful piece and I love the white background. It leaves more space for the colors to go; I feel that a darker background would make the whole painting seem closed in.

I really enjoy this painting. I think it's perfect for summer.

I do not comment on your work very often--Your work as a whole is fantastic and you receive thousands of Fav's per painting.
All well deserved--

However, I fell in love with this the moment I saw it and love demands comment.
You have captured the soul of oriental beauty  ---The face of traditional Japanese dance
Surrounded by tour de force of washes from your mercurial palette of chimerical color

Absolutely wonderful!
Not much can be said to discredit it, however I feel perhaps seeing her shoulder or something at the bottom right hand corner would help distinguish the subject from the blank background
Other than that, it is stunning. I love the introduction of lime colours in contrast to your other work! Shows you keep developing as an artist :)
Really well done!!

This is a lovely composition - really gentle use of colour - especially the purple and yellows...especially like the subtle use of bits of shadow in the face...

Excellent use of colors. Nice composition. I don't typically like white backgrounds, so that's my only negative. And it's a pretty minor one, at that.
