I'm generally not a fan of digital art, but what you've done here is breath-taking. I love the layering and choice of colours... do digital colours have names? From my screen it looks like a cadmium scarlet, a colour one cannot deny. Thank you for sharing this striking piece!
Thank you very much! I work with both digital and traditional media, and it's been a beautiful journey utilizing the tools of either one..Yes, cadmium red! (though i'm pretty sure that on Lascaux - where this was painted on - there's an unfortunate number next to the color..)
I just looked at your gallery..your work is truly wonderful! I'm going back again to take some favorites with me..
Nikki, This is a stunning piece of work. My wife, Dawn, saw this one in a group of gallery images and was amazed at how emotive this portrait is. It is obviously a beautiful woman, but there is a definite air of "sadness" or possibly "contemplation". It doesn't really matter, as I believe, art means different things to all of us. I do, however, know this is a "stand-alone" piece, and can imagine this image on the wall of anyones house and most certainly in a gallery. I do not know if you have put this out into the business domain but do feel this one is a "winner". Thank you so much for sharing this inspirational work of art. Simon
Thank you so very much for your thoughts, Simon! This is one of my works that holds a lot of meaning to me, and it makes me really happy to hear that it inspires and touches people.. It has been in my plans, for a while, to make a small series of portraits in the same manner..Your words made me revisit this idea. Again, thank you so very much (also, a big thanks to your wife, Dawn) for sharing your thoughts with me. Nikki
