This is an image made for ImagineFX issue 54, Painter vs Photoshop review article.

Being a bit bored with painting women in dresses, I wanted to make something slightly self-ironic for a change. I don't think I've ever had as much fun painting anything. :) The trash and chicken took quite a bit of googled reference. Especially the newspapers were hell to get right. [link]

Completed in Painter X, Painter 7, and Photoshop CS. If you're interested in the closeups, they're available here: [link]

Also, here's some WIPs for anyone who's interested (don't mind the super messy color layout): [link]

odd painting ..badly painted face..the shoulders disappear inot the distance ..bad photoref..the chicken humourous and nice..

hands come from somewhere but where? dress stuck in front like photoshop layer..a distorted effort.. the lighting saves it as marta would know..

the hair renders the observer speechless..
Beautiful Painting.. I love the fact how simple props make an amazing and elegant piece of art...:)
