New Portrait Commission!

I just started this portrait today of a very lovely lady.  Her sweet husband commissioned me to paint it for her.  I think he plans to give it to her for her birthday.  The photograph I am working with was taken over 20 years ago.  He says he loves her glow and the gleam in her eyes.  So sweet!

I am in the beginning stage of washes.  Just laying down colors to get a feel for the shadows and highlights.  Stay tuned!
