Really beautiful. Such a soft effect with lovely skin tones. I really love the way you have finished the BG as it blends in beautifully with the whole picture.

This portrait is beautfiul, as were the others you've shown recently. Really love the eyes. With you going at it, Italy is going to be covered with beautiful, sensitive pastel portraits of children!

Alessandra, you've definitely proven a constancy of high quality portraits. This too is very beautiful. The hair, especially the hair, is gorgeous, and I love how it is backlit!

Hello, Thank you all of you, for your comments, I have to say it was a pleasure to work from good photos, as my photographer friend's provided me, for these portraits!

By the way, i really appreciate your answers, and I hope you had a great time for Christmas. My next commission is...quite strange, actually: a guy asked me to do the Gioconda (Mona Lisa) with an oriental face...:confused:

I will start it soon. Now, let's go on with relaxing and happy holiday time!
Bye Alessandra:wave:

Your work is just fabulous.

Any chance you would post a WIP from the beginning of a painting?
