I have studied oil painting and traditional materials while still in University of Fine Art. But currently, I am doing graphic design and digital art. Hopefully I'll have time for traditional painting.
That's a lovely painting. I really like your sense of focus and how well you got across the expression in her face. The piece has a really good balance between the rough and polished parts! I would maaaaybe polish the fingers closest to the face a bit more and keep the hands darker, but that aside...gorgeous work =]
