Riaan...very nice! Color and lighting is very good! She's very contemplative. You wonder what she's thinking about. A lost love...a new love...her purpose...

Nice!

This is a great painting. The colors, details and shading age perfect. This one is uptown indeed.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.
