My beautiful sister, seven months pregnant.  This is another example of a painting I’m not quite happy with, but also loth to fiddle around with too much anymore.  The main reason I wanted to paint this in the first place is for the facial expression – peace, inwards-looking, contentment, silence.  Though the transparent drapery was very satisfying to paint, I haven’t got the face right yet.  It’s a physically large picture, which has made it easier to approach the fine details.
