Love it! seems to have a 50's feel to it, what kind of paints, size ex..  coloring and shadows are wonderful, the highlights on her nose and cheeks is perfect!  you've achieved the roundness effect in the cheeks and nose really well.  My favorite part is her smile and red lipstick! :)

It is the late 40's actually.  The painting is not done yet.  It is done in oil, life size on 11 x 16 mounted canvas.  I have been into family portraits for a few years now.  I have been traveling to teachers and mentors to get some skills, but now I am working on my own.  This portrait is the first one working on my own.  I think you do terrific portraits by the way.  Are you working with pencil or charcoal?

One of the better ones I have seen.   I cannot do this, you are very talented.
