The painting is just looking very weird to me. I've edited both to black/white to see if I can see what's wrong, and to my eye, the painting is not that far off. But the colored painting looks strange. Maybe darkening the body some more, and a graded wash on the neck, and some more serious shadowing on the face ...? I still have the 1st one of Maddy, with only the background painted; with that, I was going to try to "melt" her body into a darker background. Sounds good, but the execution is definitely going to be a challenge. As always, all comments are welcome!!!
