i LOVE how she's holding the dagger.. beautiful work on the hands <3
is this going to be a full-blown painting?

No, she's just a sketch, a speed painting is more appropriate I guess
thanks emma!

Me too, i love Sargent, i have a book with some of his landscapes and portraits. I love how he uses brushstrokes and little oil, it's so effective and yet the results are always gorgeous, the colors are beautiful even in the more monochromatic studies. Yours has the mood of the original, your figure is great, the detail is there but it's like Sargent's "Less is More" feel wich is so hard to get.. Congratulations!
