Hi Lisa ! This portrait is amazing, so moving, so profound. I adore the look of the sister, we can really feel how strongly she wants to protect her brother. her love seems unlimited. Last week, Birgitta (artisalma) and I, have done two parallel artworks based on the theme "Brother ans sister". If you're curious about it, see our deviations here : [link] [link]

Wow! This is almost forcibly emotional.

So calm and quiet and yet so intense it made me flinch!

I just had to add it to my favourites.

Very good stuff. One of your very best, I think.
I love the emotion you were able to express. And that you don't shy away from dealing with complex emotions.

That's an amazing photo and you are both gorgeous :) I had seen it, maybe it was in my head subconsciously :> Although your expressions are far sweeter :)
