I love your ability to capture portraits, I don't know the lady, but I feel this is her, somehow. That sounds Weird of me! The hair looks like it would feel silky soft & scented. How do you do it?? Beautiful!! She looks as if she is going to be pleased with her portrait! Sue UK

Alright, since everybody talked about the beautiful skin tones, I will find something else: her eyes and lips. The depth and light reflexions there are just astounding. And they did not show as well in the large version. Great to see this close-up.

Thank you so much, Matt, and yet I suspect that this is but a pale reflection next to her true beauty.....heh heh silver tongued me Smile

Thank you, Rita, coming from a brilliant skin tone artist such as you this is a compliment indeed Smile

Thank you, Marley, unfortunately because of the large scale of the pic some of the detail and cross-hatched colour tones are lost when reduced in size...I'm so glad you appreciate this my friend Smile

Very beautiful James! I'd just like to echo the comments made by Marley about the skin tone, really nice! Madeleine has such a natural beauty which you have really made shine in this piece!
