All my work is done in traditional oil. Thank you for the nice comment!

Love the setting and the warmth n the picture wish I could paint people so well. Is this traditional oil or the water based?

Thank you for considering what I have said. I know about the rework stuff. You can never get the same exact shade of skin and shade color. So, I suggest you leave this as it is and for your next painting really look at how shading can best be displayed in spite of what you actually see in the photo. I hope this suggestion improves your thinking and ultimately your painting.

Thank you for your comments. I agree that photos must be edited for the purpose of a painting. Still reworking certain parts of this...

Nice painting. Feels soothing to look at with one exception. That light sunspot on the left leg above the knee is distracting to me. Because that spot is there I assume you worked from a photo. I have found that what works in a photo does not always work in a painting so sometimes things have to be left out or changed. I believe this is one of those times. I have not voted yet. I never give a vote without a reason attached.
