Very impressed especially with the detail and shadowing in the clothing.
A lot of the darkening of old paintings is the liberal amounts of varnish applied by preservers and general deterioration over the years. Present day restorers have to tread a fine line between restoration and preservation.

and every twenty years the technology changes so they decide the restorers that went before were FOS and ruined the painting. Thanks for the comp.

I like it Greg, the ammended version is an improvement. I would like to suggest adding a little more depth to her headress. Hey, you think I should get one of those? I love the link you've provided as well. I've not seen an of William Whittakers work before. I can see why you like it. I would love to be able to reproduce the backgrounds he uses. Any suggestions?

Look who came to visit, the beautiful and talented photographer from Wet Canvas.
I'm still working on the head cover.
Backgrounds, different ways to do that. Fill in the subject with the surrounding colors. Make tiles or patterns from areas of it. Use Color Schemer app to get harmonious colors from your own work, and then get some big brushes and paint one.
As for your headdress, yes, as long as you send me a pic large enough to use.

Well, if anyone is going to get me to pop in - it would you! I'm a double agent these days - posing as a photographer during the day..... a would be artist at night. Thanks for the suggestions. I'm really am enjoying your work.

and another one. This a little more refined than the last, I hope. Can't get the right texture from the smudge tool. I would like it to act like a rough fabric, but alas, it acts like a polishing cloth. A different texture on the wall this time, and mostly just trying to get the folds to look correct.

Hi Fugitive, It's me, the nosy Dutch kid again...

Just out of curiosity..have you ever tried painting on real canvas with real paint?

From what I've seen of your work, it might give you some surprisingly good results and in return it will improve your skills on 'computer painting' perhaps?

Don't know how to respond to that one, you think I should go back to square 1 and start over? I did learn the old fashoned way, but haven't painted in a long time. Tool handling is different in CG because of the feel and instant results. You don't get the drag on the brush, you do on paper or canvas, and you definaitly don't have the smudge tool in real painting. Wheather I need to go back or not, it's not happening soon. And since I've only been doing this CG painting for seven months, I think I'll give it a chance to bloom.
