I love it, Celeste! The colors are great. I love how you suggested her earrings - and everything, for that matter - with such minimal strokes.

Very awesome. I love the composition of hair, lighted forehead, and splashes of color. I could go on.

Celeste,

Art Bar, what an excellent idea! I made my way over to Behind the Scenes as well. Thank you for pointing the way!

Take care,

i love her eyes and brows and the earrings just bring her to life. my favorite part about your work is there are no definitions (to me) - it messy and yet so beautifully figured.

A great job at keeping it free and gestural! Love the colors. I like the forehead and the suggestion of hair shadows there.
