One of my favorite subjects to paint...cute girls with funky head gear. This is a smaller painting done on 12" x 15" canvas paper. This was a lot of fun. BTW most of my knowledge of Opera is from Bugs Bunny cartoons. So you see...watching cartoons can, indeed, be educational. The woman in the painting is Lisa Bettany and she's a hell of a photographer. Her blog is Mostlylisa. Check out some of her awesome photos over at Flickr.
