Artwork Description

"...if they say I love too many,
passing the time for joy,
taking my pleasure here and there:
how should I know?
if they say I showed you
the flame hidden deeply in me
to test its force in you:
how should I know?
if they say with the common passion
that churns in young people
I need you - and with no more:
how should I know?"
~ Chanson, Pernette du Guillet

All painted in Photoshop... the original's 13 x 22.

The thick look is probably because I was experimenting with the hard brushes - I wanted to see if it was possible for me to go painterly with them while still remaining fairly realistic.

Nice painting! If I hadn 't seen you've done this digitally, I would've guessed this was traditional media, has a nice thick oil look. I agree nice lighting and choice of colors.
