A recent commission

I really enjoyed working on this last commission from a photo from 1935.

Oh la la Vivienne !
This is so beautiful and very touching !
I love this.
What a great commission to receive ! Was the photograph as beautiful or did you add some of these dreamy details ?
Did you decide of the colours yourself ?

Great painting, indeed !

Thank you Matte & Mathyld! The photo was really beautiful, it was sepia tone so I chose the colors (other than hair and eye color) which were supplied by the daughter of the little girl in blue. I think the most endearing thing to me is the older sister running through in the background.

I love the intensity of the light you have created here- really
'de-lightful' painting!
