Hi everyone, here is a new piece I did. I decided to try something new when painting the sculpture. I guess this is as close to a human as I have come.
I was trying to capture a magical feeling in this.
Hope you like it.

12" x 16" acrylic

The three dimensional look and the realism of the stone of the statue are amazing - beautiful palette in this.

Thanks so much everyone. Maybe one day I will try a real face. After this I think I could probably do it......I guess we will see.
