Hi Liza,

A strong, beautiful portrait. I like the bright light areas, and deep shadows.

Great impact this painting makes Liza. Love the simplicity and strength of the image.

Liza Hirst said...

Hi Barbara,
I'm pleased you like the painting.
Daring such strong contrasts is an ongoing challenge for me.

Liza Hirst said...

Thanks a lot for your kind comment, Sheila.

Hi Liza! time is a little scarce these days but i wanted to let you know I really love this painting. A powerful, really compelling portrait. Love the dark side of the face and the composition. Everything works here and it is very beautiful. Congrats! Aliaena

Hi Aliaena!
Nice to hear from you again! Thank you for leaving your kind comment.
Here, time is also scarce at the moment, so that I don't even manage to paint every day - hope to get down to it again next week at the latest.
