This was a commissioned artwork.
Once the paint is dry i will add a little more detail to the hair. And give the whole upper half a warm glaze.

The old 18th century French masters, Elizabeth Louise Vigee-Lebrun and Hyacinthe Rigaud both come to mind. They painted in a different style for sure, and they both were consummate portrait painters. I am reminded of them because I can see how dedicated you are. Today it is like discovering a secret valley full of exotic rare and delicate flowers! Thank you!

this is stunning.
i love how you've arranged the composition almost yin yang-like.
the upper half in a monotone color palette and the bottom half in a very rich colorful color palette.
the detailing is immaculate.
the face is flawless.
it's gorgeous man.

It's a fascinating concept, keeping the fan in full colour, but the figure in a monotone. I like it. The fan looks like it was fun to paint.

Wauw ik ben weer diep onder de indruk.... ze lijkt zó van het doek af te kunnen komen. Ongelooflijk hoe zacht je de overgangen maakt en een prachtig gekozen contrast met de waaier en kleuren daarvan!
