Burning Daylight

Model  taranisrod
Trying someting a bit different. A while ago Taranisrod offered their photos as reference so I thought I'd take a chance and give it a try. This one is based on the piece called Pending… Thank you guys for your kindness.
Not really sure about the need for using mature filter on this one, but DA suggested it so I thought I'd play safe. I sincerely hope no one finds this offensive. My intention was to create as respectful representation of the reference photo and the model as my very limited abilities would allow. I sincerely hope I have managed to achieve this. I would however be very grateful for any opinions commentaries, critiques regarding my success in this matter as well as any advice and suggestion on how to improve it in the future.

And please be respectful to the model. I might remove the drawing otherwise.

I really like your interpretation of the photo, powerful colours and impeccable watercolour process. Maybe a summer afternoon nap... great work ! :clap:

Thank you Nat-ti I really appreciate your comments. Especially in this case. You're reading my mind! :) I keep imagining those quiet, listless summer afternoons trying to somehow survive heat waves. When you fall asleep for a few moments, losing all sense of time, so it feels like ages have passed by. And then when you look past the curtains you can't see any sings of life in the scorching heat outside, and you feel like you're the only person left on Earth. Don't know why but I always imagined it a glimpse of eternity or at least of time standing still :)

Yep. same feeling with Sci Fi illustrations of the 70's. Thanks again!

Yes those too and psychadelic/prog rock album covers :) Thank you for the fave and watch and especially for suggesting this collaboration. Not something I was planning to do in the near future since I'm not that familiar with painting human form, but I really enjoyed it very much and I believe I learned quite a bit in the process. I'll use the other photo as well, but I'll most likely try it in a different style and medium.
