I just found this forum for art!  I had never seen this before.
Anyhow, I'm fairly new to Craftster and thought I'd post this oil painting I did a few months back.  It's about 11x14" and as of now remains unframed.
Constructive criticism is always welcome.

It's beautiful.  She looks like Scarlett Johansson.

Wow, her eyes really pop! Eyes are so hard to get right- good job. And the subtle shading on the skin works well.

Two pieces of constructive criticism- the lining of her lips is too dark, especially compared to the skin. Also, the placement of her collarbones in relation to her shoulder width makes it hard to tell whether that's cleavage or a shoulder on the right.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for your input.
I thought the same things as you....lining of the lips to dark and the neck/collar bone area.
I spent so long on this painting that I couldn't be bothered to go back and work on it (I get impatient and want to start new work!)
That was meant to be her shoulder/arm area showing....my husband said the same as you!

Thanks again!

I love this, and i actually like the dark lining on the lips. I think the proportion of the face is really good, but i agree with the other people who said the arm is a bit out, it could do with either being more to the right, or moving the other shoulder on the left a bit further left and maybe a bit bigger (if you get what i mean?) To balance it all out . I really like it  Grin
