cbor47Great Portrait. Baby’s head shape a tad off.Skin tones need more warmth. Denis
You have a very dark value (hair, eyes, lips) and then a big jump in value to ,mid tones. In the photo there are a lot more dark values that you have painted as mid tones.Hope that help.
@cbor47 Lovely theme but I have to say it is not over. What if you could put both the photos side by side and you ask yourself like Mark 'What are the differences?'...like a do it yourself method of teaching. Would you do that and then finish this beautiful painting? I hope I am not being harsh but this will help you see more.
