Wow this looks great..the light on the sheet is really amazing. I was thinking of how it would look if the sheet sort of blending in more with the clouds towards the end of it though. Like having it transform into the clouds at the end.

Guest's picture

Wow, this is beautiful! I love your work.

Thanks, Judith.

Such detail and such amazing use of light and color. I would feel completely satisfied if I could get half this good with oils...
Beautiful! I think this is my favorite in your gallery. I love the celtic knots. How do you do those in oil so well?

So beautiful

Guest's picture

This is the caliber of work that makes my stomach do backflips...*gawks* I get the impression that she's not alone under those sheets...am I right? Wink

As everybody said before, this is a true masterpiece, which fully deserves editor's pick. This looks almost like a picture and I could watch it forever. Those folds are stunning and the shading on her body is fenomenal! Especially her elbow. She looks like she's curled up in a silk sheet with her body almost feeling like silk. It is fantastic the way you create this feeling....... I'm glad to be your student!!!!

Thank you, abranda.
and thank you to all of you who wrote those touching messages.

vacher's picture

Thank you, Anneth.
There's no meaning to the celtic knotwork, but like I said before, there is a spiritual connotation that inspires my work in many ways.

vacher's picture

Thank you Kort.
The arch doesn't mean anything specific, but there is definitely a spiritual connotation. It inspires my work a lot.

vacher's picture

Thank you, Yeechi.
As for the print, well, there will be a limited edition on canvas soon.
If you prefer smaller, there's a 13" x 19" open edition on Epson photo paper for $30.00 (including shipping) . You can contact me at christophe.vacher@excite.com if you're interested.

No, i know exactly what you mean, Terry. The size is right, I checked several times because it seemed weird to me too. But the way shadows are cast on the arm (especially on the right side) and the fact it is foreshortened give this weird impression.

On the day i ever come close to doing something this spectacular, i will die a happy person.

This just leaves me breathless.

Holy Farfehgnugen!!! I ca-can't believe it! *drops to his knees and softly says* Master, I am your pupil. The fabric, the way you, the, the lighting, so soft, just, just beautiful. *Speechless, Jaw drops to floor* *does kowtow*

yeechi's picture

I can't come up with anything coherent to say that hasn't already been said! Any possibility of prints? Maybe?

naddy's picture

Once again Chris, you've managed to out do yourself. Your work is a true inspiration to all that lay eyes on it.

twopynts's picture

Stunning. Amazing painting. Does the arch have any meaning?

swisnie's picture

Christophe, beautiful, beautiful work! The drapery work is amazing.

abranda's picture

I do believe you are my favorite artist ever. You have all the passion and ecpertise of the old masters and the imagination and inspiration of a muse. I love your work. It's inspiring, breathtaking, and absolutley unbelievable. This piece is "WOW." I love the drapery, and her skin and body structure. Beautiful rendering.
