Cela a été fait dans le style des artistes néerlandais du 16ème siècle. It is acrylic on canvas. Completed 6/21/2017. All comments are welcome, it’s how I learn.
In this painting, which was my first attempt at doing a 16th masterpiece style, subtlety was the challenge. The hair must appear light and natural, yet angelic. The highlights and shadows must draw the figure out of the canvas. The layers upon layers of paint make up the skin tone. There are many unique colors here that I could never duplicate again. The complexity of the painting is impossible to explain, but with close examination it begins to show itself.
