This painting was the first time I captured more than what was visible to the eyes. It's was also the first time I weaned myself off using a reference photo. This was because I actually lost the reference photo after completing the preliminary sketch.
The photo was taken at a going away party for my dearest friend. She was moving to Toronto indefinitely, and I captured this tearful farewell between her and another friend.
