Well done. Looks very good.

 

I would definitely keep those flowers they add a good vibe to her.

Really nice. I get this feeling that she is on the edge of destroying everything or saving everyone, you just can't tell!

 

It's really nice to see those colored used together and done very well! Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for all the kind words! I am learning so much hanging out here on the forums with all of you! I just hope I don't get too rusty in the next 7 weeks. I will be vacationing in the states because.....I'm a Memaw! I am leaving Saturday to head to Cali to see my new granddaughter, roadtripping through Yosemite, Yellowstone, etc to get to Missouri where my new grandson should have arrived by then. I'll still be lurking on the forums and shopping like crazy, but all of my painting stuff will be at home.  :(  I wanted to do the summer exchange but couldn't because of the trip so hopefully I can get in on the autumn one!

 

P.S. Galahni made the store page! So tickled!

      Here is Josephine Lucero. I have been wanting to paint a pretty girl using pinks and greys for quite awhile. There are birds in Australia called galahs and I just love them. Grey bodies with pink bellies and heads. They aren't the brightest colored birds here but there's just something about them I like.
       
      I knew I needed a girl wearing a cloak so I could do her dress in pinks but the cloak in greys. The Josephine figure is perfect. I have renamed her Galahni.
       
      Anyway, advice was given to me to work on my highlights and shadows. I have been afraid to highlight too much. I found a tutorial in the Painting Tips forum on layering so decided to try that with Galahni.
       
      I was also advised to thin my paints which is what this method depends on so thought I would kill two birds with one stone. (Maybe not the correct phrase since this is inspired by birds?)
       
      Her face was already done before I got the other critiques but I did tweak it a bit to try and add a bit more shadow and highlight. I did the dress today. She is a little sloppy because I found out sometimes I thinned the paint too much or had too much on my brush. I had a few Oh ____! moments!
       
      Ok, do I need to take the highlights up one step further?
       
      Comments and critiques welcome!
