Oil on canvas, Renaissance technique of Raphael.
The sitter was a local realtor with her son. She was not dressed for the occasion, the boy misbehaved badly and I wasn't sure what to do. It took several sittings, many sketches and photos during the course of three years. Finally I got the vision of a grand portrait. I dressed the sitters in luxury garments and painted castles in the background (the ones I visited when lived in England). I studied Raphael's technique for the woman's skin and applied it in the portrait.
