hello there everyone...:). sharing a digitaly painted portrait, in artrage - tablet. all from scratch (from memory and visualization).
inpsiration for this work, came from a charcoal sketch that i did, of one of my students. though its painted with expressive, unblended brushstrokes, but the composition, lighting and setting is very much done in a neo-classical manner. the model here, is in Abaaya and in a translucent veil, in a relaxing mood, turns her head slighty and makes an eye contact.
my goal was to capture that mood and moment, that stayed.

i still have to upload this painting at my website. and many many more as well.

cheers...:).

Ii Waheed,

Reduce the longest side to 800 pixels.

Then it will show.

Properties say it is slightly bigger than that.

waheednasir- That is beautiful. You have captured the mystery of a beautiful woman and shown the effect of the veil on that beauty. Cheers.

Be well,

Fashmir
