    Gipsy Queen

    A copy excercise from a Riccardo Benvenuti's painting. Oils and pencils with few airbrush touches. Some good lessons I hope to build in ...

    Caesar... yes a wild and untamed beauty.. the work in the fabrics is stunning. and the vulnerability in the face and expression along with the wild hair ... very nice work...

    I love the look on her face Cesare. Is she in her dreams elsewhere? I love this one very much

    I tried to get the blinking silky fabric texture by means of pencils with oils here, dear MSIE. Glad to know I possibly succeeded to some extent. Thank You!

    Thank You, dear Gary. I also like to think that the wind apparently moving her hair comes from her passionate character rather than from an external source.

    Probably she does, dear Katie, but in a fiercely passionate and concrete way I think. Thank You!

    Thank You, dear Pat! I think that using, when appropriate, red on black in a painting, may be quite helpful to make a painting look more impressive.

    Thank You, dear Sandra. She's certainly someone who doesn't care too much of what the social constraints and public opinion would impose to her manners, but still not at all a coarse, vulgar and and ignorant lady in my view.

    Nicely done fabric, Caesar, i like her windy hair also.... there's nothing, what is not likable.... and that face... always yours....in this case a bit worried about something. Outstanding work as usually. Bravo!!!!!!!!!
