Beautiful Rembrandt lighting, illuminating one side of her face but with some detail remaining in the shadowed side. Catching her most elegant features while also coming off as dramatic. The beauty and grace of this portrait remains as elegant and graceful as her true self—creating an alluring mood to the viewer.
