I'm so humbled by this picture. I was commissioned to do a similar type of work for family members, but this is so much more advanced. You've accurately re-created the style and design of the era while maintaining your own personality.
A wonderful idea to do a Renaissance-like portrait from a photo. Of course no Italian painter would have used a dusky background, but this makes your painting the more intriguing. I hope the person you portrayed liked herself in that saintly look.
