First I would like to say, to anyone who has not watched the video of this speed painting, it's amazing and very fun to watch! It starts out as a very realistic looking portrait, but about halfway through it really becomes completely different, with all the textures and a variety of media.
Thank you so much for making the video.
Three aspects of the painting that make it so beautiful:
1. The expression on her face; it is so calm and knowing. There is a lot of depth to the eyes that make it very emotional.
2. The different media and textures; this makes it interesting, I could not get tired of looking at all the different techniques that were used.
3. The choice of colors; black and white in this case is so powerful. Also some light blue - or is that my imagination?
And three things that I think could be better:
1. In the video, it started out with very dark shading in the crease of the eyelids and curving up to the eyebrows, but later white acrylic was added over that area. I think that may have taken away some the depth of the eyes. If it had stayed darker, the eyes would be more the focus.
2. There is acrylic spray on two areas: one of the cheeks, that looks very nice, and one on the forehead. I think the one on the forehead should not be such a straight line, because it adds too much harshness to the face. Because of this it is difficult to appreciate the nice curve of the woman's right eyebrow; it is drowned out by the spray. Or even if the spray were not so dark in that area, it would help.
3. This one is not so important, but still, the nose does not match the mouth. Both are well proportioned on their own, but the mouth looks like a front view while the nose is slightly angled view. But maybe the meaning of this was to add a small imperfection to the face, to make it more realistic.
I am always nervous when I critique art that is more advanced than mine, I hope this was helpful.

I posted this on the video but thought you might check dA more often~ Did you know pretty much what you were going for with this before you started? Or was the spray, the straight white lines, all those extras on top of the figure... were those improvisations/spontaneous decisions as you went?

p.s. I've been following you for awhile and this is my favorite of your pieces :worship:

I am SO impressed with that, and I really mean that in a very big, personal way, because most of the time when I try to just go crazy and improvise something, it looks... really bad =P Cheers to you :clap:

love the process you used, after watching the video i noticed so much more about the piece. Though you did do one of my pet peeves in not putting shadow in the teardrop(idk the actual name) shape that should be in between the nose and top lip, you mayve done that on purpose tho, but still very nice piece.

Once again, excellent job, Jane. :worship: I'm always amazed of the approach you have on doing these portraits because they're more than just well-executed. Nowadays I've seen far too many portraits done with such precision and sheer perfection (technicality-wise) as if they're well-photographed drawings yet lack a certain emotional... flare (if that makes any sense ^^; ) It's hard to explain it but that's just how I feel at times with artworks that depict too much of what already exists. So what captivates me the most is when an artwork brings out something else, something that only the artist is willing to express... and that's why all your portraits captivate me. There's so much more about them than meets the eye. hehe (srry, rambling too much) :ashamed:
