Love the feel of the movement around the eyes, so evocative of smoke and the fact that you can just make out the eyes is wonderful. My only hmm bit is the bird itself which l take it from the title of the piece is meant to be a phoenix? To me it looks like the very last thing you did and kind of looks half done and a bit clunky compared to the liquidity of the rest of the work. That said, it's still a gorgeous piece , congratulations you clever thing! Like the rest of your work, its a beautiful piece.
