I decided on the magenta color. Venetian red is just too orange for a nice dress color.

This is a very beautiful painting.

And I know you didn´t ask for critique, but I was very confused about the anatomy on the first look. Because the lower part of the body is so dark, my brain couln´t make out that she is sitting. Instead it looked to me like a "dwarf" woman leaning onto something - until then I saw the legs. If the light is coming from the left - wouldn´t it light also hit her thigh and knee?

(And I can´t believe I am actually sending this to you, because you really are an incredible artist!!!)

Thank you for your comment. I did intentionally darken the lower half of the painting to draw attention towards the face. It is just something I do in almost all of my paintings. It is also not the best photograph, I will switch out the image when I have time to varnish and re-shoot.

Thanks again. I appreciate the feedback.

All the best

It is clear that you darkened the lower part and the drawing of attention is also perfect. I am sure when you varnished and do a better shot of the image, it will come across beautifully!

And thank you so very much for the watch. I fell honoured that such a great artist is actually gonna look at a beginners "artwork"
