Pharaoh's Jewel

This adorable child had the most beautiful eyes and hair that inspired painting! I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph her and after talking to her mother before she came in, found she was part Egyptian. The vintage, Egyptian tunic is supposedly authentic and was found on eBay from the 70s just in time for the portrait session. I wanted a shimmery interpretation like metallic paint was reflecting light in a modern impressionistic style. Custom brushes were used in Corel Painter 2020 with a medium Intuos Pro tablet and Art pen.
