  1. she exudes a quiet confidence,
    comfortable in her own skin.
    the light is stunning, bright and soft at the same time-a lovely portrait.

  4. thank you Michael for your kind thoughts. i think it is like a sandwich: you start with the emotion; you move into the technique and then you finish it off with emotion... that is how it works for me and i give my everything to it.

  5. Very nice skin tones Rahina, affected obviously by the reflected whites of the table cloth. I cannot remember what it looked like before so can't compare but I think it is a very successful painting now.

  9. Beautiful handling of the light across the body and through the glass, the reflected light on the cheek. The shadow on the wall gives her real 3D presence. Such an engaging glance that you captured with great subtlety, Rahina.

  11. She's lived! I can only imagine the stories she'd tell over a pint - if she trusted you.
