This was a commission for the lovely and patient ~kelbardi
Her character Miriam was a pleasure to paint, especially those folds in her shirt. I usually have such frustration with clothing so I got my boyfriend to snap a photo of me posing with a similar shirt, gosh it helped a LOT. I should do that more often.
I think this is the best portrait I've ever painted. Certainly my favorite.
