An Enjoyable Read
on 28 February 2017
Having read "A Vintage Affair", which I enjoyed very much, I decided to buy "The Very Picture of You".
Besides being a well written book about portrait painting in oils, this book shows how a mother can bring chaos into her daughters' lives through manipulative behaviour. Plenty of romance which keeps the reader guessing as to the final outcome.
I also enjoyed reading about the steps of painting portraits, and the need to paint live rather than from photos.
