International orders are always a treat for me. This client, who lives in Australia, wanted a portrait of her lovely daughter.
She sent me this photo, then ordered a 9x12 sized portrait from my Etsy shop. I sent her scans of the drawing in progress. I left out the flower pattern on her shirt because I thought it would be too distracting, and put a lot of time into making sure that her long hair looked smooth and shiny.
After receiving the portrait, the client said "I've shown your portrait to people as they visit the house and everyone has been so positive."
