wow! sooo beautiful!
what is your process in making a lovely...
um! wait.

this is a really small canvas 12 inches by 18inches? That must be really challenging, as you've got to make a really tight piece in every aspect.

the lighting is fantastic and the quality of her skin is so smooth! How many layers did you make? how thin is the paint?

oh so many questions, and you are asking the wrong person as i really don't know what i'm doing! i'm just learning as i muddle along
erm, i always paint the canvas a buff colour in acrylic just so's i'm not painting straight onto bright white, then i sketch out my visual in pencil so that i can make amends and check the composition on the canvas before applying paint, other than that i mostly paint with oils straight out of the tube, no medium or anything
i mix white into nearly every colour i do, it seems to make it more opaque and gives a chalky quality i like

hope that helps?

Very nice, with the flower in the hair, the smoking, the look and all.. Very creamy somehow.
