Another unfinished piece.

However it's actually not unfinished anymore, but it was for my art exam at school so sadly it got sent away before i could take a picture of the completed painting :(
Oh well i hope this will do untill i get the original back, the quality of the photo is again not the best quality there is alot more detail than you can see here. Its roughly around A2 size and is one of my first water colours so any feedback on it is more than welcome, just keep in mind that its not finished! especially areas such as the hair and her shirt.

anyway let me know what you think :)

hey :)
im jess and im 17 from australia.
im doing an appraising task about the process of ageing and i was just wondering if it would be ok if i could use this painting to analyse in my written clinical essay?
i think its a beautiful work of art and would really like if i could write about it, oh i just thought i should ask your permition first.

Absolutely beautiful. The pose and expression are perfect, and the luminescence of the skin is especially well done. To be honest, I really like unfinished portraits, they have a cool sense of immediacy and life.

Definitely a lot of depth to it! I think this is a delicate and sensitive piece that shows a lot of technical still and emotional understanding. You can really feel the light as it's gently touching the woman's cheek.

The only undeveloped area of the painting, to me, is the lower left-hand corner. I really can't comment on your ability with watercolors because I'm not a watercolorist myself, but as a viewer, I think the painting works very very nicely.
