Cinderella Painting


I'm back at oils again!! I am so happy to have been afforded the opportunity to paint in oils again. I got commissioned to paint my interpretation of cinderella. I wanted it to have a classical feel and felt inspired by J.W. Waterhouse. I learned many things about painting in oils in a short period of time. I had minor problems with paint not drying and preparing the piece for framing. Everything worked out in the end and the person it was for loved it so I feel like I accomplished my goal. I will keep on track and start on a number of new pieces. Man digital does NOT compare to painting traditional. Hope u guys like it!

Damn Carlos! Really nice work and you picked out a nice frame that compliments the piece and doesn't overshadow it or distract from it.
