Wow! That's beautiful! I like how you have her left arm slightly hyperextended at the elbow (something only women can do - with very rare exceptions). It's a great way to add more femininity to the painting.

The telescope is a wonderful addition to the scene. I have a mental image that she is in Ancient Rome or Greece cradling her most valued possession - her telescope. If it were the classical world, it would be a bit anachronistic, but that's part of the beauty of the image: it looks right.

For such a still pose you've got such a wonderful feeling of movement and energy going on! I really really adore the cold light.

The feeling of calm it gives is so enchanting, as if time goes twice slower in that magical place bathing you in soft starlight every night long enough for not to bother about astronomical observation time dependence.

Is this Hypatia, the Alexandria Greek female philosopher/mathematician? She's a hero of mine-- in fact my user name was nearly ZoeHypatia. It looks like Rachel Weiss playing her in the film Agora. 😍

That wasn't my intention, but I don't mind that interpretation! I hope to find the time to do a Hypatia piece someday. Scott Burdick has a nice one, google it if you haven't seen it.

The contrast between the stone steps, the metal of the telescope, and her skin is very interesting. Perfect hands, by the way!
