Any comments about Rebecca must include many superlatives.

She is a wonderful, caring and beautiful young woman.

I wanted to explore some portrait techniques and liked the reference photo used for this work. This has a modified Rembrandt type of lighting, although not as dramatic as his works. [ and yes also not nearly as good...]

The background is mostly a blend of Windsor orange and viridian.


  1. Thanks for the beautiful portrait dad! I like my outfit- I wish I really owned it! I can't wait to see it in real life next week.
