Green is my favourite colour so this appeals to me very much. The composition is very well thought about the black so excentuated the variant greens and the whole effect seems to glow. It is relaxed yet achieves movement. Good luck in the comp. Ps just been reading an article on artists use of green. Concensus is a lot avoid it, yet the article pointed out it is natures's greatest colour. The article went on to say concentrate in observations and you will discover green in many other colours. It further said you can mix reds, browns, yellows and blues to determine subtle shades, even skin tones. Its a fact I never stop learning. :)

Beautiful, graceful and elegant. I love the colors and the hat! Your work is truly amazing. I like how her face is concealed leaving her expression a mystery but i think shes happy to be your muse.

First off let me say you are an amazing artist. Add you age into the equation, and you're one of the best artist I have seen in quite some time. this caught my eye due to the color and movement that you were able to achieve. The highlights really made this amazing. This deserves no less than a seven. I'd love to see what your work will be like as you progress. Your talent already is over the top.
Well done

Gorgeous color pallet....many shades of green with beautiful illumination. Beautiful brush strokes and blending and shading of colors. Nice movement created in your art work. I love that the girls is wearing black grounds your bright greens. Your play with light and shadows creates depth and interest in your work. A creative and talented art work. A good contender in the contest and best wishes.

Perfect for St Pats day. Nice lights playing of the darks. Gives energy and motion to the entire piece. She looks like she's having fun. I like the way her hat adds mystery to the story.

Comment from Wyatt Detweiler


Great painting. Good body form on the woman. The colors are bold and bright. Nice work with oils, I have tried them and I end up making more of a mess the more I work on it:)

Comment from Patti C


An excellent job of painting. The anatomy of the lady is! perfect! You've done a great job with the flowing scarf. Your composition is perfect. I like that the colors a lighter around her head since that really shows her off. Really proud of you
