I made it as a commission for a friend.
She was pregnant and beautiful, this is her portrait at her ninth month. She asked me a portrait as a gift from her mother, the future grandma.
The little girl was born June 24, her name is Viola.. and I gave the painting to the new mom, closed by a violet ribbon. :heart:

I love the minimalist yet stark treatment of the hands, very efficient.

devo dire che è un ritratto bellissimo =) anche se, quando lo guardo, sento che manca un qualcosa, forse un leggero tocco di colore. Per carità, i lavori in bianco e nero sono favolosi; ma qui manca quella nota di colore per rendere il tutto perfetto. Ovviamente, è solo un mio parere ;)

Possibly either white paint or just leaving spaces while colouring, I'd say?

Just incredibly lovely and moving! (My grandmother's name was Viola, so I have very good associations with that name.)
