Client was very pleased with this portrait,can be used for illustration.

As they should be; BEAUTIFUL! Stephany's style shines through in your technique, with those signature, clear outlines. The strong contrast of the cool pallet of background and jumpsuits against the rich, warm tones of their skin, head wrap, and small gold accents, creates visual tension, while at the same time, is well balanced by warmer tones in both the yellowish highlights on their clothes and the warmer yellow-greens of the grass and largest single leaf, framing the front woman's face beautifully. The gorgeous edges, values, and curved lines in the luscious greens of your foliage — especially where the leaves break into the foreground between the women's faces, creating unexpected and interesting shapes — are also repeated in minature, in the one wrinkled pocket and soft denim folds of their clothing.
You have really outdone yourself here. You should be very proud.

I think I have a new favorite! Was this painted straight from a photograph?

I'm glad to have a positive effect on such a positive person's day. That makes my day! : )
Very IMPRESSIVE.
So did you use any references for your colors? Or just out of your brain straight to the canvas?
Stephany Causey - Over 30 days ago
Out of my brain straight to the canvas,god gifted talent.

Me, too, even though I went to college for a fine arts degree. God made it perfectly clear to me one morning in Sunday school, after my senior year in high school, that I would go into art since my mother also had a great talent and unfortunately, never did much with it. PRAISE GOD!!
