This was done with a softbox and a flashlight in my bedroom at home.

“Portia is the heroine of William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, a rich, beautiful, very intelligent heiress. She disguises herself as Balthasar, a young doctor of law, whereby she saves the life of Bassanio’s friend, Antonio, in court.
Portia is one of the most prominent of Shakespeare’s heroines in his mature romantic comedies. She is beautiful, gracious, rich, intelligent, quick witted and with high standards in men. In the court scenes, Portia finds a technicality in the bond, thereby outwitting Shylock and saving Antonio’s life when everyone else fails.”

    All I can say to anyone who invests in art, is buy this work now,while the price is still good. Someday you won’t be able to afford it.Atfer she gets her first big commission or has work in NPG you’ll wish you had a little piece of what I’m sure will be a rich history. She’s just warming up now
