Shoreline

Here's a new digital painting. I like how the face turned out, but backgrounds always bring me down. I just don't have the patience for the detail and have a hard time suggesting things with simple strokes. I really think I need to put more time into the concept. I usually go with whatever comes to me as I am working. I thought this was a good idea with the orange line, but maybe that confuses the light source, the moon maybe? Hope you like it.
And, drop by my website. I've added some detail images if you click on paintings.

This is really another great piece Dave... To me, the orange line isn't confusing the light source... I mean, it tells may be more this way than if your light source was clearly defined... we ask a lot of questions "who's that girl? what is she facing? what does she look so sad? etc."
great job on the face and hairs...
It's a great thing that all your characters seem to be submerged by their emotions...
you don't stop impressing me man!
and thanks for the details on your website, this is a very good idea and a great help to us, I mean, we could have a better view of your great detailed work (I really dig the hear and hairs of your black and white "young woman" for example)
thanks again for sharing your art with us all man!

Her face is beautiful. And I thought the orange line was a sunset under stormy dark sky, it just adds to the mood. Great work!

Very very beau travail !!!

Subtil et envoutant, le marbre vibre avec cette pointe d'orange... Ce ton chaud vient réanimer la pierre froide.

Vraiment fascinant !!!

Well... It'really impressive. It remembers me of some classical painters. And don't wory about the background. It's doing well. anyway, It's not what we are looking at with such a beautiful girl within .
