The talented Judit García-Talavera has graciously permitted me to share with all of you her lovely illustration of Giovanna Battaglia. Below is a copy of the original photo upon which Judit based her illustration for comparison. I love especially the way that she captures Giovanna's eyes and that the only points of color are her dress and shoes. Be sure to visit Judit's web site to see more of her beautiful style of art.
