I rarely use other peoples photos as a resource, and I don't often paint portraits, but I have been drawn to a certain photo that I came across when flicking around on the net. It has been sat on my phone for ages, and I knew that I would have to have a pop at painting it. I really like the pose, the lighting, and the lacy clothes, all of which which present and interesting challenge to paint. It was painted over several days, with a bit here and a bit there. It will now probably sit in a cupboard until I run out of canvases at some point, at which time I will probably paint over it. Still, it was fun to do.
