Arto,
I like, this is very well done...a really good painting. I like the photo of the boy looking at the painting. Are these your children, I know Antti paints his children often.

This painting is quite beautiful, you have painted well. The little boy looking at the painting is priceless as well.

hey arto

this is a lovely piece of work..i guess my critique would be the bottom of the dress. Maybe the shape is a bit too regular and need some softer edges. you done a great job. Thanks for posting!

Arto Isotalo said...

Yes, softening the dress edges might indeed add a sense of movement to it. Thanks for your critique, Steve!

Aivan upeaa kättenjälkeä! En yleisesti paljoa perusta tällaisesta perus realismista, mutta tämä iskee! (: Niin herkkä maalaus.
