Stephen Bauman. Oil. Isn’t she adorable? This is a stage in the process of the painting, and I think Stephen decided to remove the bird on her shoulder, which breaks my heart. Know when to stop. Stephen is an amazing artist who studied classical techniques in an atelier setting in Florence and now teaches online. If you want to learn the traditional realist methods, find him on Youtube and join his Patreon group. Very affordable and highly recommended.
