After Collins—Take 3

























Third attempt at copying Collins. Still searching for that sweet spot
between painting what you see and inventing.

I think this has the closest feel yet of what you are after. It is lovely.

Une grande subtilité avec le jeu de la lumière et l'ombre... Cela apporte à votre personnage une expression impénétrable. Elle est belle et secrète.
Gros bisous

I am blown away by all 3 of your paintings! I think you've captured a looseness (love it!) and a different atmosphere in each one.

The shadow on the right is a brilliant adaptation of this pose!(Now, does THAT make sense?) It adds additional drama, mystery and story. Your technique is marvelous!Love the temperature changes.

I love how you're taking the same painting and totally changing the mood in each one. I think you're definitely finding the sweet spot.
