This is visually arresting and over whelming in detail.
The space is well balanced visually and sticks to it's cooler color pallet through out. The balance of light and dark wouldn't work if it were not for all the detail you packed into her costume and for the fact that you kept so much out of the face and hands.
If I had one complaint about this at all it would be that it seems to lack visual depth. This can be, potentially, chocked up to your individual style.
All in all this is a strong item and I'd look forward to seeing more like it. Damn fine.
The woman who inspired me in this work is an old friend whose lust for life echoes in her work as a theater actress. In the Philippines we often say that you need "libog" (lust) to be a great artist, and that is why she became the model for this piece
