  1. I love the backgrounds on these paintings the view from the window, the shelves and chest..the material in her dress

  2. Val,
    All the details - I wonder how long to paint a painting like this?

  3. I read once that one of the PreRaphaelites would take two weeks to paint an area the size of a large coin...so I would think that these detailed paintings probably took quite a while
