This painting is a personal piece. I was using a photograph of one of my best friends. She loves purple and Butterflies so it was easy to make the concept work. The use of patterns is because I am in love with Art Nouveau at the moment, and the painting was just a challenge to make a convincing portrait and utilize Painter and Photoshop together.
