Artwork Description

"Her bones will ache, Her mouth will shake, And as the Passion dies a magic Heart will break.
Her Violet skie will need to cry, cause if it doesnt rain then everything will die"
Natalie Ibruglia

Hey everyone I am back, Yeh I know the character Pandora is so overdone, but I have always wanted to paint her, plus I wanted to try another floor just so I dont forget how to paint it Smile. Well the model used in this one was my best friend Andrea(told you she would be in more to come). Well she really inspires me, I had to beg her to let me paint her, which is funny since she is so pretty, I hope that doesnt mean I am bad. Anyway, I dont think I have anything else to say.

I have yet to see a work of yours which does not have beautiful clothes. Your ability to make every piece of clothing look delicate, almost ethereal, is amazing and I admire your work...a lot! I wish they made dresses that floated off of people's bodies like in your painting, but alas....Smile

I love the simpleness of the nightgown and the background. Her hair is absolutely stunning and I like the expression she is givivng off, almost as if she can see the viewer and knows what she is about to do.

Simply Timeless, the reflextion within the stone floor is exceptional, and the detail (sighs) wonderful works as always Kurtis.

No I have not patrick, I will have to look that up. I am so glad you said I wm improving I work so damn hard, it is about time. But the composition of the posing and expression was unfluenced much by William Whitaker and JW Waterhouse.

Absolutely perfect rendition, in my opinion, of the beautiful Pandora-- perfectly capturing her character of being slightly sly and slightly dumb. Exquisite face. Yes and the floor too. Wink And the dress, and, well, everything else. Very very well done...

Another very nifty piece, Kurtis! You're improving so consistantly it's scary... I love the colors and composition here. Have you ever seen the Barry Smith Pandora? That's another great one (very different though).
