What Do You Think???

Did I mess her up? 
I decided to add some detail on the forehead of this painting....



I like it but HB was less than lukewarm about it.


I'm always one who likes lots of embellishments and added texture but too often I stop before I get there. So this time I just decided to add something else and see what happened. I like her and I think she looks exotic....but she may not be for everyone. What do you think?

NOTE: at the suggestion of Giggles I'm linking this with Paint Party Friday.

  1. I like it! She does look very exotic. The pattern reminds me of a henna tattoo.

  2. I like her very much. The only thing I perhaps would have tried is to tone the colour down a bit. A soft grey or something like it. Since you're asking. Best thing though is to follow your own heart.

  3. I think of Moire tattoos and the tribal tattoo'd women of Dewz, Tunisia. It works!

  5. Personally I love how these left handed people turned out. I especially like the eyes...I think they are less contrived!! Yes I am a pattern freak so I like the uniqueness of it!! Sometimes we have to embrace what comes through, it's not always our choice, it just happens!!

    Good job!!
    Hugs Giggles...put her on paint party friday...great people there!!!

  9. Hi Janet...when I first looked at your girl, I thought...I don't know about that...then I went down and looked at the way it was before and I like it better now...nope...not a "mess up"!

  11. I like this girl! There is something about her that I can't quite put my finger on, whether it's the colours, the pattern or that it's drawn left handed. She is really beautiful.

  14. I think she's beautiful! One can't always please everyone, and it would be sad if that was one's only thought when making art. ;) It's about creating what you love!
    Awesome work!

  28. I like the pattern but for me, I would prefer to have some of that green/blue color from the lower part of the face in the background of the pattern instead of the flat white. It would tie it together better and give more form to that section. But that is just what I would like and you should do what YOU like. I love the headdress and that greenish tone in her skin.
