Acrylic on canvas 1m by 1.5m
took 65-70 hrs over almost 2 months

Please visit my website www.rebekahcodlinart.co.nz and like my page www.facebook.com/rebekahcportraits :D

A commissioned work inspired by my previous painting of my little sister. I think this one is better. First time using this mix of tones but it all seemed to come together in the end!

Please let me know what you think, your thoughts and critiques are much appreciated

Because it's otherwise perfect, I've just got to say it took quite a few minutes to notice that the nose was more or less out of sync. So beautiful, it doesn't even matter.

:iconb-reka:
B-Reka Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
:) the nose is that way because my sisters (and mine) is naturally slightly higher one side than the other, we get it from Dad haha. One of the imperfections faces can have ;)

The color/shading is beautiful, however I think the anatomy is a tad off. The angle of the nose seems off, the lips are angled great and that's what I'm basing this critique off of. The nose doesn't line up quite right.
The eyes look perfect, the detail is superb. I think this is an overall great piece.

Good job. (:

Not sure if it was intentional, but the way the shadows play across her face has me thinking of deer. It's cool. :)
