This little garden is the entrance to my studio.
Acrylic on untreated wall, I took this picture today, I made this painting in May, it has already seen a lot of rainy days but acrylics are still there
I spent about 10 hours to finish it.

The cool palette used here is done so with expertise, your control of these shades is astounding. Not only do you know exactly where to put a color, but you do so with ease. Though working with an unnatural (in terms of usual human coloration) color scheme, the face looks very alive, and very real.
Her features are balanced & overall the layout of both the face & the overall piece is very well done. The butterflies are well balanced; the original four in focus becoming visually pleasing with the addition of those on the right side of the photo.
Though abstract, the piece is well controlled. Every drip seems to be planned, ever splatter predetermined.
The only thing that jumps out to me as being off is her left eye (right side of the photo). It seems a bit too ethereal. Perhaps darkening the pupil would have made it feel right.
Overall, this is a perfectly executed piece. You've worked well within the perimeters of the area, incorporating the light fixtures & natural imperfections of the wall well. They frame the focus - the face - perfectly. The balance of more butterflies on the right side of the photo & with the higher hedge on the left shows that your ability to work with your surroundings is there.
Very well done!
