I'm a little curious about something, i got to ask this, what are the differences between oils and acrylics except the time of dry, like what are the profits of eace material?

I understand how difficult it is to work so small. I am doing a series of portraits for a client right now. They are slightly bigger than this at 5"x7" but still challenging. Great work Heather. I always get excited whenever you submit something.

How you use temperature and contrast is so confident. The blue in the back ground is great. Its hard to believe its as small as you say, such sensitivity!
