What can I say about this portrait? It was actually shot at a wedding, and some children were blowing bubbles just as the sun was setting.
I positioned myself so that the sun gave this young lady a rim light, and also backlit the bubbles making them much more obvious.
Finally, I overpainted the image with a digital tablet and pen, removing all traces of the photographic pixels, and leaving what is best described as a “painterly” feel to the piece. Since the original photo is no longer present, this is in fact a digitally painted portrait.

Did you know, Portraiture goes back to over 5,000 years ago, in Ancient Egyptian times. Of course it wasn’t a camera that was uses, but sculptures.
