Gorgeous work…I’ll admit that lust for the dress is why this caught my eye.
It’s also very cute that I see two “kitties” in the picture.

This is in its own class. Suberb work. I have never tried tempera, but I have the idea that its even harder than working with oils- I love especially how you did the hands+sleeves+arms. Everything is flawless. Extra points for the cute fluffy kitty :aww: :meow:

Style and subject work together very well, technique appears excellent. Picture itself is striking and original in context. Pretty and interesting/engaging. You might consider continuing to work in tempera with this sort of result.

Wow, I thought it was a photo at first! Almost didn't notice the cat as it blends with the dress somewhat. But the whole painting looks very well, I'm impressed. :)
