Wow, very nice. I like the light on her face, and that this seems to have so much movement.

The guy who taught me egg tempera, silverpoint, how to make pastels, and everything else useful that I know also taught me one very important saying. "It takes two artists to do a painting. One to paint it, and one to rip the brush out of her hands when it's done."

Anyway, your layers paid off.

Oh my god... this is beautiful! This is so wonderful it defys all words in every language that ever existed! I love how the lines intertwined in such a simple yet complicated pattern, all overlapping somehow in a beautiful design, and the woman, just so detailed, and the hair.. EVERYTHING is just so perfect. Just a wonderful picture, I love every inch. Excellent work, kudos to you!!
