Nope, it isn't me. The model for this piece was in fact a close friend of mine. Thanks for the comparison....however she is blonde with blue eyes and I am a brown eyed brunette. Never been mistaken for each other in real life but I will take the comparison as a compliment certainly!

It's so realistic, it almost looked like a real person when I first saw it. Good luck to you Brigid!

The lighting in this image is superb, and the flowers on her head are wonderfully rendered. Beautiful drawing.

Thank you James I love your work as well. I did so much research for this image, deciding whether or not she should be portrayed with dark hair, skin and eyes as people of the region have. I was surprised to find out that the Greeks treasured light hair and eyes above all, so the model was perfect the way she was. Of course there are a lot of varying complexions in that region but generally when one thinks Greek they think olive skin tone. But the model was spot on so it worked out brilliantly!

I think this is my favorite of your works, the way that you have mamages to capture her in the light and with the perfect shading! Keep it up!
