    Out of those 4, my vote would definately be number 4.

    I like the first, but they all are very interesting.

    yes - but there's no catchlight in her eye... I think it will end up looking "dead"...

    well - I have now inked two - they are not totally finished; especially the B/W version.

    an explanation on the coloured one:

    Here in Denmark the colour of the political right wing is blue and the left is red.
    The minister belongs to a party just in bewteen those two; albeit leaning towards the blue..

    I thought it could be interesting to use those two colours, but I also added warmth as I actually think she is a warm person..

    The B/W image isn't done yet - I am not convinced by it - it needs something extra - something in the background, and maybe also some warmth...

    Tomorrow I'll take another look and se....

    (sorry for the image quality - just quick snaps...)

    (and BTW the image size is approx 50x70cm or 20x27")

    I'm sure she'll be happy with whatever you end up with Emil. She has an impish almost-smile that you've captured. Personally I like number 3 (in the originals) but I'm sure I'll change my mind if I keep looking at them.
    If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

    I'm afraid it doesn't get much better! But I also know I'm wrong. These are great!

    aah thanks, but I just changed the B/W.. I didn't like the white background and felt her to be too flat in presence..

    I'll attach what I have come up with

    emil -

    all i can say is these are dynamite!
    can you add a subtle shimmering glowing hue
    to the b/w one that is there, but not there at the same time?
    kind of like the iridescent gold hue a black goldfish has
    its there, but not there at the same time ...
    (encaustic/wax based paints? )
