What a lovely work, almost like Art Deco. I am wondering what inspired it. Very nice work!

Very beautiful painting. Yes, it's like Art Decor. The amazing thing is to see how you change a modern fashion pose to an elegant classic lady. I really love this. :)

A wonderful drawing and exquisitely painted. The color palette is great for this work. It is wonderful Art Deco but still with a lot of the
characteristics of Art Nouveau posters too. I am thinking of the likes of poster art by Alphonse Mucha. It is gorgeous work. :)

I'm very happy, that the intention I meant appeared to you. Thank you for your comments!

A wonderful Liberty/ Art Nouveau style illustration! :)
Aurora = Dawn on either Latin or Italian. The palette is therefore quite appropriate too to express it.

Beautiful, I like art deco and fantasy and this reminds me of a goddess print.

I like it very Mucha, Alfonse!

Very beautiful, those sweeping lines. Your graphic painting is WAY more interesting and satisfying to look at than the photo, which is a nice pose, but sorta average dress and the background is almost like it was meant to be cut away. Looking at it makes me feel like I'm at a photo shoot and everyone is working. Yours invites us into a world that is romantic and designed. Give me the 20's over late 50's early 60's for style and models for painting any day.

Was Mucha Art Deco or Art Noveau? Because of the flowing lines I'm thinking it's Noveau. But it's not the area I'm most well versed.

Be that as it may, you have a great eye and sense of style.

Nice work.

Really nice style and design.

01-31-2009, 10:30 PM
thank you a lot for your comments, they make me happy.
yes, Mucha is a very great inspiration for me and he's definitely Art Nuveau.

I always wanted to try to paint like the Art Nuveau/ Art Deco artists and this was my first work in this style. It makes me so happy, that you all recognize my intention. :)

Hi Thyra

This one swept me off my feats.
I am really amazed how you were able to take inspiration in the photo and NOT simply end off in a photo-like copy. You truly amaze. Inspire.

Don't know much about Art Deco. I immediately thought of some of the works of Audrey Kawasaki. Yours have the same quality. Looking forward to see more!
