A painting of Brett Manning, a lovely, lovely illustrator from Chicago.
Brett and i admire each others work greatly and so decided to swap portraits in the mail. This is my interpretation of her wide eyed charm, her luscious brown locks and infinitely magical aura.
I think she is a very talented young lady with such a defined style and i appreciate the naturalistic quality of her work. It's wild and gritty but at the same time soft and sensual.
