Saw this in Spectrum last year and had to track it down and say that I keep coming back to it for brushwork reference in my own painting. Great piece!

That's impressive to see how level of light you can reproduce with oil... I am obligated to zoom on the images to be sure that it's made with traditionnal tools and not with photoshop ! So... incredible :D

Wow, what a beautiful style. I love how you show her in a complete trance, including the position of the feet, like she's not entirely of this world at the moment.

May I ask how you got those magnificent shining blues? I'm in complete awe. :)

The blue is ultramarine, maybe a little alizarin crimson, but I did add a little extra saturation to the blue in the lightest parts with photoshop.

You definitely should do fantasy more often. You're naturally good at it.

Amazing, and just love how with oils you can do such a work that seems digital... the mixture of the two comes out great! :)
