Thank you John and everyone for your honest feedback and comments. Appreciate every piece of advice. 

There's nothing wrong with painting for money and I am very happy and admire anyone who can market and sell their artwork. I will keep practicing and try out different styles and hopefully can develop my own.

Thank you again for your encouragement and critique.

I think there is an excellent sense of the structure of the model's highlighted cheekbone and eye orbits, the nose is very convincing, you got a good start on the hair, and I like that you didn't over fuss with the clothing.  In general, I think you have a grasp of the underlying anatomy, so that's a good place to be and the refinement and details will follow in time.  OK, so the green may need some rethinking, but it's a secondary issue and I don't think it's irreversible.  One can gain from shorter studies as well as longer poses.  We did a lot of both when I was taking life class.

Oh, for heaven's sakes, bvssey, being honest doesn't mean being brutal! Christen told us right up front that this was a class project -- that she was in the process of learning.

I hope you are having a better day today.Smile Maybe some studio time would help.

A season is set for everything; a time for every experience under heaven.

Thank you Edna, Sarah and everyone on the forum for continuing support and kind words. I believe Bvssey has no mean purpose other than to state his/her opinion which is fine with me. I think we all have strong love for art. 

thanks everyone and happy paintings....Smile

You are welcome!  I think you did a great job on your journey in art. You have good instincts and learn fast. I can't wait to see your next one. Well done.
