    Beautiful Composition, Color and Light

    This painting stands out for it's carefully nuanced effects, excellent use of line (drawing), and values, and flowing, balanced composition. Upon first look, however, the technical reasons for this painting's success are far from my mind; I'm drawn into the story and imagine the plaintive vibrato of the widower's violin.

    Superlative !

    Great composition, lighting, feeling, emotion and palette choice. This piece is a masterpiece.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.

    Fun and very well done.

    Fantastic light!

    beautiful

    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.
