Wow - this has got to be my favourite piece of art out of the three. I love the expressions of the people and the colour is gorgeous. Dad was wondering if you could send the link to any other sites you have your work on so we can look at it. From Celia.

AAhh i see your from nz also, if only i'd known earlier, **Slaps forehead** haha, great to see more new zealanders online. This just knocks my socks off, it really is as striking as the artists i grew up with (geoff taylor being one). exquisite details, wonderfull ambience. Great piece brian Laughing out loud

Thanks Scott,it worked well, as with all work, the image was clear in my head, full colour, the painting itself becomes almost a labour.
But, you gotta do what you gotta do - right ?

Yes, any or all of the Preraphaelites influence, directly or indirectly my work, from time to time, how can one go past such beauty and not be moved, or as Frank Zappa once said
" there is nothing original left to do, and don`t you kid yourself ", who knows !

Maxfield Parrish has long held an attraction for me, his use of colour and attention to detail, it had to appear somewhere.

Thanks for that - but don`t ask how long it took to paint !

I love the Maxfield Parrish influence in this, the flowing of the cloths and her lovely hair.

I agree with James, this is a beautiful painting with great color and wonderful use of light and shadow, not to mention the detail work! Excellent stuff Brian.
