Nice use of Oils( ?) The blending is magnificent - I always find hair to be the biggest problem - hers is devine with some magnificent highlights

Thank you! Yep I agree that hair can be awkward. I always avoid the 'paint every strand' approach and build it up with 3 tonal values, leaving the paint pretty loose and the detail quite soft. Anyway I'd probably get bored very quickly painting one strand at a time!

Such delicate expression in such a warm portrait. The background texture is interesting, too. Nice!

THanks again fella though I feel I can't take any of the credit for that, it was really down to the original photographer Cathleen Tarawhiti. Follow the link in the painting's description John, Cathleen has some awesome portrait stock!

Don't do tuts mate, sorry, think it's better for artists to find their own style through experimentation :D (I'll gladly give advice though!):)
