Hi again Michael - oh that explains it then, yes the email advice must have come through very fast!

Please continue to critique, as I said it is all very important information and helps me learn and improve, everyone sees something in a work that others don't - all good!

Hi Sandi.  I decided to erase my comment .... But I guess someone saw it before I did it? .. it was only up for a minute!  I was hesitant to post my critique because I thought I might have gotten to picky?  It looks like you have everything under control.

Michael - I've just received an email advice that you left a comment on this work but I can't find it here.  I would like to respond anyway...

Thank you so much for taking the time to critique, such valuable information is always appreciated.  I do believe you are right about the contour line.  It is interesting, before I went in to better delineate the folds of the drape, the eye focal point was very distinct and that line less necessary.  Then I drew away from it by darkening the drape.  So I believe enhancing that contour line by negatively painting in the background would work to re-establish it's importance, I just didn't  want to kill the light there.
