Very nice image. Great form. Its unusual for you so I think that really adds to its mysticism. Great job with the depth and color form. Wonderful job with the background and the feathers. Excellent image!!!

Hey, nice. J'aime bien l'effet des irrégularités de la peinture, ça fait un style un peu "ancien", comme ds un vieux livre ou qqch comme ça.

good work love the tones and texture, nice work, think about using some other things to paint with in you 365 + 1/4 like feathers.. and pallete knifes and things, i love your style as it is i just think you would benefit from it... love your work babes x

oh and painting to music is always good, jus expressive brush strokes, not creating a picture, it's always interesting x

i really like the eye area & the long feathers are quite pretty too!

national geographic is a nifty place to search for ideas - i have used it quite a few times myself. ;)

thanks! i also liked the eye area. I couldnt get the long feathers to look as they are on the picture, but im quite happy with them anyways.

i think this is one of my paintings that i can actualy give to my mother or grandmother! hahaha.

stunning job! i love all the shading and the mixed browns and yellows. it works well since nothing in life is purely white and you show that through this :)

thanks! thats exactly why i choose to paint this, i need to learn how light plays with colours. I also did a lot of life paintings, but they arent interesting enough to post here (example: a painting of my gamecube...boring!)
