Here another little play with mouse, fill, previous textures, blending modes, airspray etc. ... Hope You like this one too. I?m probably unconsciously influenced by Mrs. Katie-Coops here. :o Maybe I should have blurred the outline a little bit :rolleyes::confused: ... I don't know ...

04-02-2014, 06:54 AM
You've added just enough of a blur for one's imagination to fill in the rest....
Take care Caesar,

Your lady shapes are always so beautifully done Caesar, and the colours and textures are terrific! :cool:

04-02-2014, 09:03 AM
Good Work! the lady need the umbrela:cool:

04-02-2014, 09:04 AM
very nice (and sexy):o

That's the old Caesar X) but did't you get the new tablet? She's damn sexy! Nicely done :cool: SCIAU

Playful, cheeky, and fun. I like it! And as always, I love your unique style. Kind of reminds me of the old masters, if they got to paint what they secretly wanted to paint, that is. :D

Thank you, dear Steve! You'd better use Your imagination since the fugure underneath is just a little more than a silhouette (just look at herebelow where I added another version and the idea of the basic drawing behind the curtains). In the past I promoted a thread where I proposed black or grey silhouette or outlined figure of my imagination like this and everybody willing was requested to build a painting with them and around them ....

Thank You, dear Robyn. Textures are from past explorations I made in the past thereabout and the blending effects may harmonize and get wonderful colors.

What for, dear Sabena. Spring rains? LOL:o;) Thank You!

Thank You, dear SilverO. Being Aphrodeites she cannot be but sexy! ;)

Dear Andrea, I got the "new" stored tablet and I'll try it to see if I can get the precision i need on another engaging idea, but I couldn't resist the sad look of my faithful mouse, so ... I can hardly paint women without ending up to make them look sexy, even when they're overweight or a little aged ... Evidently i'm not good with neorealismo. LOL:o;) CIAU! BELLA FRA'!

Thank You, dear Scribbledsoul! I guess that's part of the drive of old masters and myself too, us naughty boys! I would apologize with old masters for undeservedly going along with them in this comment.

As for the last shape, pls feel free, in case, to use it and get a painting out of it as you like! :)

04-02-2014, 11:41 PM
Love those backgrounds Cesare and sorry I kinda got into your head lol:)

04-03-2014, 12:47 AM
Haha, Cesare. Great imagination and texture and a pretty lady too.
I think I will have to make a dancer with your offer here!

04-03-2014, 01:40 AM
Very shapely ladies dear Caesar, but of course they are Caesars Ladies lol

04-03-2014, 02:27 AM
Dear Katie, I feel no problem at all, not even the slightest headache ... I rather find it a little dangerous for You to wander in my head, a crazy, naughty and ill-famed place for a gentle lady, so full of weird thoughts, ideas and creatures that Alice too would certainly avoid .... LOL:o;) Thank You!

Pls, help Yourself, dear Sandra! I can hardly wait for enjoying of some gorgeous artpiece by You out of it! Thank You!

Thank You, dear Pat! I'm glad You like my mental harem ...LOL:o;)

Caesar well done, I certainly admire your drawing skills, and the backgrounds are very nice they remind me of paintings from a previous era love the browns and mottled texture. You must have an amazing model for these, maybe we should meet for a coffee? :rolleyes::rolleyes:

The mind boggles, Caesar. You and your female action figures. . . I think the only flaw in the commercial franchise would be it suffering because you couldn't sell clothes. You see, Barbie had all the extra crap you could buy for her. I suppose you could have the clothes for sale and carelessly drape it over the furniture. And I guess you could sell doll size lamps and chairs and rugs to scatter the garments across. Definitely big on shoe sales though. Spikes are in. Go man go!

04-03-2014, 04:40 AM
Well Cesare, my dancer turned into an insect.
From sexy to cute, sorry, haha.:o

04-03-2014, 06:44 AM
Sweet Sting Sandy.....

04-03-2014, 07:35 AM
Imagination is a great asset Caesar as is your lady :)

Sandy I like your transformation :D

04-03-2014, 09:20 AM
How in the world did you managed to turn Caesar's kinky Silhouette into a pure and innocent Bee Dear Alexandra? :cool:

Really nice, Alexandra. But I'm afraid she's not not quite anatomically correct. Even Caesar's had two stingers one each on the bottom of each foot. So where's her stinger, pray tell? Not that I'm staring at her bottom, unlike with Caesar's which seems to be staring back.

Love your technique. Really great realization of objects through clear shapes. And they all look soft and fuzzy and cuddly. Nice crisp colors too.

04-03-2014, 02:26 PM
I am afraid that it was the bum=bumblebee:p:o:rolleyes::o

04-03-2014, 08:52 PM
Dear Sandra, thank you very much for accepting the challenge and raising the quality level of this thread by means of this gorgeous image.
I see that spring poetry is filling Your heart, so You turned the silhouette into an hairy and airy being working to pollination, thus fully consistent with Aprodithes as the goddess generating all the new life at springtime in ancient mythology and with kid booklets starting from pollination to eventually explain how love affairs would take babies at home ... LOL:o;)

Thank You, dear Jean, for Your most kind words!

04-06-2014, 08:40 AM
Thanks Caesar, had a go at her, hope its okay

04-06-2014, 08:49 AM
Sandy love your busy little bee, flowers are beautiful

04-07-2014, 06:19 AM
Dear Pat, what a nice jean shorts. I love the countryside populated by such sexy farmers! You painted this funny art piece masterfully in Your lovely style. Thank You!
