Original Creation

1897 reproduction of Italian painter Roberto Ferruzzi's 'Madonnina", which means "little mother"

Like in any portrait, the ressemblance of the face was difficult. It was suppose to ressemble an 11 year old child holding her baby brother. I had guidance during an art class in 2018, when I painted this portrait. skin tones are hard. It was my biggest challenge.



I think you did a great job.

Well deserved! I love how each time I see this I notice something different about it. I’ve looked at this a dozen times and I’m just now noticing the halo of light around her head.
