    Stunning work Tahnja…great skin tones, wow on the hair…she is beautiful :))

  • Thank you beautiful lady…I’m up late after being out for a run and resting after surviving the heat at work today….such a nice cool feel in the air and I’m enjoying it lol.

    Her hair really has turned out wonderful….it took a bit to get right but the highlights really made it gleam. Can’t wait for Muse to see this paining

    Tahnja, I you are on FIRE! In the WIP cafe! Now look at one of it’s fruits!! WOW!!! Lovely eyes & wonderful smooth skin tones, set in a contrasting & layered background! Stunning :)

  • Edy!!!! Oh man it’s so nice to read your comment….I’m indeed on a roll, I have a very clear perception of what I want from my work at the moment and it’s helping me a great deal.

    I have to keep my backgrounds simple because that’s the way I prefer to paint them as I’m a LOUSY landscape painter! lol.

    Beautiful work, Tahnja. I’ll say again that you do hair so well. I love how you matched the lavendar blue of her eyes and the color of the sky. Such a beautiful face; a perfect “Eve”.

  • Thank you with all my heart Frannie….hope my step by step images helped to show how I achieved this gorgeous mane of hair…it’s such a feature of Muse’ that I wanted to get it right.
