Maya


Thought I'd go for some original content today.

The above is a photo of the work in progress. You can see the figure of the Blind Guitarist which is a planned series, but wasn't working in this painting, so I decided to just paint over it.

Below is the finished piece. Originally it was a much bluer hue, and I felt like was a truer representation, but made her look like a corpse. Since it was a gift to her parents, I decided to warm it up a bit, so it was less confronting, but lost a little something in the process. Overall though, I was pretty happy with it.

i can't decide if i like the finished piece or the progress one better. they have a nice light to them. your painting steadily approaching briliance.
