Those Cold Winter Mornings by blacklady-vip Those Cold Winter Mornings by blacklady-vip
So, here's another painting. When I should do other important things, I'm the most productive, I think. Well, actually there's a lot of work I should do. But the time I spend on my pictures is not wasted. That's my excuse for my conscience.

In this piece I tryed to catch the mood of a cold morning in autumn. The world looks actually warm (with the warm tones of the leaves and things like that, it's not already winter). But the mornings are very cold and dark, and you'd like to stay in your warm bed for some more time.

Oh and not to forget: I used a reference for the nose and the lips:

Edit: I've seen this on another screen and I noticed that it looks terrible. My own screen is so low contrasted, I didn't see all those strokes and so on. So here's another version. Hope it looks a bit better.

What could I do better? Please let me know.

Overall This is very nicely done, There is a significant amount of detail but the soft lines take away the harshness of it.
The black flowers in the background help accentuate her dark eyes while The dulled down colour of the lips work in well with the skin tone. The shading on the nose and lips is wonderful, however it's lacking in the neck area. I think it would benefit if you showed more of the structure in the neck. Also more detail could have been done in the eye lashes. I do however like the eyebrows how it's been done with darker and slightly lighter, it gives a more lifelike appearance to them
What do you think?
