Trolls gonna troll.

Sorry I made any comment or vote. Many times a down voter will hit someone I honor. Of course, as well as my own entries. I am just waiting for that hit to come. It usually happens around the end of the contest time line. To bad this site cannot stop or identify the down voting trolls. I think I will start doing the hidden vote and then sent a PM to the artist.

Thanks, rnc450. Lots of layers and glazing with that hair. Not as much with the freckles, but glazing is necessary to make them look like freckles. Just can't paint spots on a face and call them freckles (or so I learned, lol).

I'm a big fan of detail right down to freckles on her forehead and yes that hair must have taken a lot of painstaking work and patience on your part. Great Job!

Thank-you, Carl, that's very kind. I am pleased with this painting and somewhat surprised with how well it's been received. As you point out, many of it's attributes are tried and true standards of composition (especially in the Pre-Raphealite genre). The hair? Layers and layers of glazing. Thanks, again.

Well, this is a winner for sure. Integrate complementary colors forming a halo effect behind the head of an exquisitely painted portrait with perfect proportions. And, how did you ever paint that hair?! Reasons for my five star vote.
