A Little Girl
by: Lori Volkers

BEAUTIFUL!! You have your feelings in this picture, and the blue eyes captured you!! I wouldn't change them very much, and sometimes when you try a change, it never works, and the feeling is lost. Make another picture if you want to change things. I also agree with the light..it helps to put a small paper flag above the painting's light source, and check to make sure it is right. I am uneasy with the white cheek on the left..with the shading of her hair a little shading here will help, even if that is the light source side..little girls do have pinkish cheeks on both sides, just a little less on the clear light side. You might try a set up of a doll and extra light to see the difference between the basic color and how the high, medium and low light levels change the basic color of the face. Keep working you have a lot of talent!!

I love her blue eyes ..it all depends on whether your going for realism or how you 'see' her . When I want the 1st I use a camera ,with the 2nd I trust my feelings .

Very nice, Keep up the good work. I agree that the eyes are just a little too blue.

A very delicate painting of a young girl. I assume in watercolour? Just one thing. You appear to have two light sourses in conflict!

If you look at the eyes the highlights are to the right (as you look at it)but the left cheek has the lighter tone, compared to the other.
Hope I have made this easy to understand.

The blue of the eyes could do with toning down a little, I feel?
Keep up the good work and look forward to more portraits from you,

Pop.
