Her wistful expression evokes empathy. Makes me care about her; makes me want you to continue.

Me gusta mucho cómo logras captar el rostro y la expresión con una aparente simplicidad. Muy bueno.

She is just beautiful...brings to mind thoughts of earlier days in France...think girlfriend of an artist such as Van Gogh or even Picasso...

Composition and skin tones - your practice is fine stuff!

Hi Celeste,
this seems to be a Modigliani , I like it !

There's a nice feel here. Her long neck reminds me of Modigliani--also the tilt of her head. As usual Celeste, beautiful work.

I really like this; she's a beauty who's a bit bored.

This is so magnificent. Such a dreamy expression. Love the simplification of forms - you make it look so easy and I know it is anything but because I have set aside my acrylic attempt at this sort of thing because despite many tries it has not looked good. You have made me want to try again & I will.
