The splash of colour really makes this painting stand out, mainly because of how vibrant both the bird is, and obviously the hair. The thing I love the most though are the eyes! They're phenomenal. What makes them though is the darkness and lifelessness the eyes actually possess. They create a massive contrast between the vibrant splash and the dark sepia colour. The skin tone really looks fantastic as well, like it always does. I find that the way the nose and mouth are painted really show extreme detail, likewise to the eyes. In overall it's another superb painting. Well done.

This is just gorgeous! I've always loved the way you do portraites but this is something else. The use of color (as always) is very rich, the random spatters of color give a real sence of life and movement. I think the most captivating part of this portraite is the eyes, the shading and deep layers of color in them really draws the viewer to the centre of the piece. I think if i were to change anything in this painting, i think i would add a bit more to the hair, i would have made it look a bit fuller with darker colors. Other than that its breathtaking :D
