The condition of this painting can vary widely and the nature of the paint sold means that they are unlikely to be in perfect condition. Paintings are sold in the condition that they are at the time of sale.
Rossi's process is to begin a portrait as if it is a classical style oil painting portrait with an underpainting, umbra layer, and dead layer. She then begins to look at the portrait and add color. The realism of the portrait is there but the emotions of the artist begin to surface. Many different colors are used to create tones, lights, and shadows.
