Beautifully expressive. The eyes have such softness in them, yet the sense of melancholy is strong. Your use of highlights and colour gives her skin a kind of a porcelain texture, making her appear fragile. Like a china doll. To me, blonde hair has always signified innocence, and your use of this colour certainly contributes to the over all feel of the portrait. Beautiful. I'm inclined to write a full critique, but I'm currently not on my computer. Please note me to remind me?
