Back in the Studio

Added on by Lara Hoke.

It's been a crazy few weeks and I have not had the opportunity to spend time in the studio.  However, yesterday I was finally able to get some work done!  I spent about an hour working on the commissioned portrait of the girl with the butterfly.

Because the source photograph does not have a background (just darkness due to the flash), and I don't have shrubs in my studio, I've been relying on the paintings of Mary Cassatt for reference on the treatment of greenery.
