this painting is a rework of Élisabeth Vigée-Lebrun´s (she was fantastic ) work "Varvara Ivanovna Ladomirsky " [link]
Varvara by *lolita-art is an amazing digitally painted portrait. The colors, the fluidity, the shading and highlights are just perfect. This piece is exquisite. (

Varvara Ivanovna Ladomirsky was my great-great-great-grandmother. She married my great-great-grandfather Ivan Dimitrievich Narishkin. She was never so vulgar-looking as this picture. You can find the real portrait at www.batguano.com/vlbladom.jpg
I sort of resent your rendering of my favourite great-grat-grandmother who was so very much more beautiful than this, who had real class as opposed to this rendering!
Beautiful work! I really like her face it's kind and radiant. Her overdress has a lovely sense of fullness like it would have in real life and the undress looks lovely and gauzy and soft. Her hair is great too, I like how much warmth of color it has.
