Celestial Practice 4: Bacchestia


A painting that I had intended to do in one sitting took four. BUT IT'S DONE. ...and I've remembered that I hate painting leaves and fruit.

A ponification of Caravaggio's Bacchus Bacchus-Caravaggio (1595) by SilFoe with way more saturation and color than his... My reasoning is this is it when it was new so hadn't faded with age and she's royal so she can pay for more pigments... Also because I like color.

beautiful! I really like that the picture is painted in the style of old portraits of the 19th century.

Very interesting! I don't see a lot of MLP interpretations of classical artworks :).

I'm really sorry, but my english is just too poor for now to properly translate thoughts came into my mind when I saw this art. So, there's some poetic fluff in my native language, heh:

Виноградинка взрывается во рту пронзительно-кислым вкусом. В ноздри бьёт запах молодого вина — терпкий, будоражащий, пряный как закатное солнце. Под пылающей жаром ладонью прохладная шелковистая шёрстка над гладким копытцем приминается, одним только прикосновением лаская кожу. Тонкая улыбка словно застыла в текучем движении, оттеняя непривычно легкомысленный взгляд. Ветра нет и мелодичный смешок летит без помех, звонко, чисто, беззаботно. Мгновение длится и длится, пока не сменяется следующим, столь же восхитительно бесконечным. Вакхестия.

Sincerely hope someone of your friends can retell it to yougood enough. Thanks for great work.
