Very nostalgic. I've been doing a bit of photo restoration lately, and this just feels familiar somehow. Like she could be some great-aunt or something. :D

On a critique-y note, her legs look a little short, but maybe it's the volume of the dress tricking my gullible eye. :laughing: great job on the fabric folds, btw!

Thank you. I was pretty pleased with how the fabric came out. I think with the leg thing, her thigh muscle (that bulge on the front of her dress) looks like it's supposed to be her hip. That would push her waist way down and make her legs look really short. It's a little bit of an odd angle now that I look at it that way.

I don't know what it is about this painting, but I just love it. The washed out tones and the composition just draw me in.

Thank you. I was pleased with how this one came out. I'm glad you commented on the composition. I laid it out carefully.
