Liz in leather boots




I just finish this painting and would really like some comments. I've been trying to soften the edges and tose edges in some areas. Do you think I might have gone to far in the dark areas? Also is the highlight on the boot too strong?It might be competeing with the face.

Joseph, I suggest you also post some closeups. That might help get some response.

Well Done Joseph, you have put alot of work onto those boots.

Others will make better comments than mine, but I find there should be more lost edges away from the focal point areas.

Was this done using a photo reference?
