A portrait of Larissa

A portrait of Larissa, oil on card, 8.6 x 11.5 cm

A portrait of my charming architect friend in her room in Taubate.
The sort of portraiture that interests me is that which uses, Dutch style, the rooms inhabited by a person as an extended attribute (though my friend is less gloomy and more lively than my depiction might imply): I like portraits by Hammershoi, Whistler and Vermeer.
