I finished another painting of my muse Wink Louise brooks.

Here is the original photograph:

Doesn't she make you just ache?  She's so gorgeous.... anyway

Here it is in progress:

And here is the completed painting (I'm sorry about the lighting).

Please offer criticism and suggestions re: how to improve!   I'm still so new to acrylics.  I feel like blending is such a challenge--this is why i chose a picture with such heavy shadows.  Smiley

Thank you for looking!

Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
