Gentle and soft. That's the emphasis of this painting. And such a wonderful technique! I hope you'll enjoy every moment of painting Violet as you experience the technique used to paint her. It is one of my favorite techniques and I could hardly bear to put her down when other duties called, until she was finished. Fill the box with dried herbs for the friend who cooks, or a journal and pen plus new gardening gloves for the friend who enjoys gardening and you'll have a unique gift that has given you pleasure to paint and share.
