Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Re: Classical Art Gallery~May 2007

Here's my version of Bouguereau's 'Evening Mood' although I think it is also known as 'Twilight'.
This is oil on canvas 50cm x 100cm. I spent about 4 weeks on this - it is x-posted in 'Painting from the Masters' off the Oil Painting Forum. Feedback is a little slow over there, 440 views and only one comment .

Re: Classical Art Gallery~May 2007

Hi Keith, she is beautiful and you've done a wonderfully good painting.
I really like the reflection you've painted in the water.
It would be very nice to see this painting in person.
It is a very thoughtful piece.

I am Sooooooooooo very sorry to hear that you've not gotten much response.
It's the same here, and maybe not as many lookers and not much comments.
Sometimes I don't know what to think myself

But thank you very much for your kindness in showing us your work here.
I've enjoyed seeing your painting.
I'd really like to see you do a wip here in classical one day.

Re: Classical Art Gallery~May 2007

Just so you won't be alone in the gallery this month
here is my study of Waterhouse's Mermaid.
I did it for Azulparsnip's month 5 challenge.






and a head shot




I think I should have used a smoother canvas but it's ok

Oil 16x20

Any body else out there please post your finished work for May

Hi and welcome Keith, you have done a beautiful job with the lady !

....and I have noticed there is very little response in this monthly gallery thread too, and I find the matter a bit discouraging... mostly because it regards finished work ! It sometimes seems to me that only the monthly challenges are getting really lively in this forum... only the "faithful bunch" still keep posting in the others !

Next challenge ? Horses ? Peacocks ? whatever you like is OK for me .. I like both!
