This was done by the master painter Constantin Egorvich Makovsky. I am trying to do over at Mary Gibilisko's site as many old master tutorials as I can. This one gave me some problems but I think I worked them out. Comments and Critiqes welcomed

 :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: Beautiful!  I don’t know how to do portraits yet, only small figures.  Facial features and skin color would be a challenge for me!  It’s hard enough trying to do landscapes and seascapes! ~Liz

After you've been painting for awhile you develop your own style.  Put out a bunch of paintings and people will be able to point yours out.  They might be able to recognize it but not be able to tell you what makes it so.  :)
