aardse liefde

a palette study based on a detail of 'De Hemelse en Aardse Liefde' by dutch painter Ary Scheffer. he's from dordrecht, the city where i was born, and this painting was in the dordrechts museum which i was visiting with my mother! i took a snapshot of the painting with my phone and later used that pic as a reference to study the skintones. i'm aware that the image isn't an exact replica, it isn't intended to be :]

process of this drawing is here on my blog.

drawn in photoshop cs5 with a cintiq 24HD. time taken - about 4 hrs. for  more info on my artwork please visit…
