I've got some reference I pulled from the internet, old art books, movies - things that capture the mood, style, romanticism that I'm shooting for in this image. Also color color COLOR! Check out my Pinterest for some interesting palette inspiration I pulled before settling on the one below.

Screengrab of me playing with colors - Took an image from the Sophia Coppolla Marie Antionette film (look at that platinum hair and gold fork- yum!) and married it with my own drawings and the classic portrait painting I found.
