Artwork Description

Signature B&W piece. Original NFS, Prints by request.

This was the first time that I didn't find myself thinking, "I could have done better." It defines the height of my technique in black and white and made me decide it was safe to take the leap to full color. Most of the detail time was spent on her hair, but the most care was taken with her face. I wanted to capture the contours while using as few lines as possible.

Source: The original photograph was by Beauty And Artist Agency, published in US Magazine, May 1997.

It looks like Julianna Margules from Mists of Avalon. I'm sorry if I butchered her name......

one of the finest masterpice Ive seen on this side. Woman's sensibility and frailness is truelly represented by the carefully worked out hair, skin and stola.
I love this picture.
