Changes

I made some changes, like I mentioned before. I was aiming for quirky and a face looking in the distance, but after a while I decided that I like it better when the portrait is looking at you.



So, I am retaking photos as well.
Thanks for visiting!

    1. Thanks, it looks more personal, more direct, doesn't it?

    2. Yes, she enganges you and draws you into the painting. There is personal interaction. The first version is very sweet in an aloof way, more of a "I¨m on my own journey" type of look.

  4. Yes when the picture is looking at you, the picture touch the soul of the one looking. I remember one photo in Vietnam where the come-on strategy of the gallery is to say that the picture follows you wherever you go, that's because of the eyes. The bad side is that, if the picture is a dead person, it seems to haunt you wherever you go! haha! Thanks for dropping by my site.

  7. Lovely girls. I do think they look best looking directly at you, so there is an interaction with the painting. I like how you darkened the eyes on the blonde, too. Very nice!
