Painting completed January 25th, 2018

I've always been fascinated with transparent and translucide material, in the strong direct light, where the light is cast into the shadow. For this study, I took the photo reference myself, using my daughter's marble collection, carefully choosing different colors and the perfect July + noon sunshine.

Very beautiful! Was it all done in ArtRage? Did you use the airbrush?

That's a phenomenal image. Very clean and a nice graphic idea. Lots of color and nostalgia. Sort of updated in subject from the country squires and their 18th century still lifes showing bounty from the manor. Still got a bit of Trompe-l'œil going but it's definitely 20th-21st century.

Wow absolutely amazing work! Would love to see you make a script of your process because I would love to see how you painted the colour and lights and how you painted the transparency of the marbels.
Q did you colour pick from a photo to get those colours?
