    Very nice man, the top light area dont flow in the same direction as the floor, this is intentional? very nice watercolor effect!

    Very nice!

    I like it a lot, if I was to complain about anything it would just be to render it up a little more as I can't get a read on what she is lying on and the tones and quality of her skin just need to be brought out more for my taste.
    but yep, good job!

    Thanks. I'm still battling with water color as a medium, having to be very careful not to overwork it. I'm also trying to focus where I add detail. Hopefully with more practice and study I'll achieve that luminous skin effect I've seen in professional portraits.

    Colors are best to study from life, you could start something simple like still life but if you have chance to go life painting classes where you can use medium of your choice also you could study masters of watercolor, look warms vs cool, saturate vs gray its subtle but its there, so you can get colors little bit more punch, this is why you study from life as photos don't really give it.

    Thanks, you are so right. I definitely have to make the time to study from life.
