Inspiring to watch you work on the I Pad better than most of us can paint with real paint. Your vibrant colors and greyed colors combine to make truly beautiful skin tones. Thank you for sharing this.

I like the top one best. There is more than just a beautiful woman to look at, very visually interesting. the second while well done... leaves me wanting more. Maybe just cuz I happened to see it in comparison to the first one? i dont know. Great work none the less.
