This is a recent painting I've finished of my wife & daughter. It's my fourth painting so far. I tried to stick as much possible to mark's method although i deviated at times. I'm not really satisfied with the result because the subject isn't that exciting and i feel like there's a lot missing.. I know that not all values are laid in and my main issue is the edges, it looks like I've made them too sharp. Also the brushwork needs work, but hopefully that will come with practice. Can you recommend any articles or tutorials about edges? Any other comments are welcome.
Here's the reference picture. And the painting.
