I submitted this painting to "Critique Me Challenge'' at the Daily Paintworks Challenge site. I received some good suggestions and did what I could to put those suggestions in my painting. The overall critique revolved around values so I darkened the shadow and lightened the light. I also elongated her right shoulder. Values continue to be a challenge for me, so this was a good experience for me. Carol Marine always comes up with great learning tools ...... so again, thank you, Carol! And thank you to all those who took the time to critique!
