Wordless Wednesday - Portrait of a Lady Mother



She looks a bit fed up! With her condition? or with the father? I'm always fascinated by the painting techniques of such portraits - how the artist managed to capture the qualities of the fabric. (It's the same with paintings of jewellery or fancy armour. How do you do metal and glass in mushy paints?)
