"Girl with turban"

I must have missed this first time round, so I'm glad you reposted it. Such a different subject for you but you can tell it's one of yours by the lustrous glow that you achieve on all your paintings, I love the folds of the headscarf and the eyes are remarkable, super work!!!

Looks good second time round, Petra.

Many thanks Debs and Seok, I really appreciate your comments

Missed this one Petra, lovely.

Thank you Glennis

I missed it also, so glad it has re-appeared. How on earth do you get that skin to be so smooth and with such a subtle sheen??? The eyes are wonderful with their shy, but knowing, expression and the head-dress is beautifully painted. Great work, Petra.

Many thanks Thea

This is a lovely painting lovely face and the headress is amazingly realistic

Thank you Ros, much appreciated
