Absolutely gorgeous work. Well done!! This is what I picture when people say "painterly" (which is a somewhat overused term sometimes IMO). Care to share your post techniques?

Wonderful comment and compliment. The painterly look is something I looked at closely when trying to achieve the same in my work. Brooke Shaden was my major inspiration to follow this stylistic look. I realised that this look is equally about the production as it is the post production. I identifies following contributers to the painterly look.

1) Soft focus. I shot it all at 2.8
2) Centrally composed subject
3) simple loop or rembrandt style lighting soft with fill
4) painted backdrop givinf dense thick rich textures and a matt finish
5) subject posture is soft, fragile and almost ballet like.
6) subject expression subdued
7) styling in keeping with period paintings

Post
1) simple clean up no major contouring or d and b
2) add noise/grain
3) reduce contrast and muddy the blacks a little with either cool or warm tones
4) warm skin simulate candle light
5) add texture to image low opacity soft light layer mask away areas
6) crop to square composition
7) colour grade as you like
8) selectively sharpen eyes and small details.

Hope this helps.

Made this myself. Purchased some primed canvas on a roll from the local art shop then using acrylic paint did the backdrop. Oliphant Studios and Schmidli are two of the very best companies for hands painted backgrounds glebe they are very expensive but do provide a hire service.
