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.

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,
