Oceana by susanschroderarts Oceana by susanschroderarts
"Oceana"

This image was inspired by Kelly Brown of Gaia clothing who created this stunning gown.[link]
The golden portion of the dress is covered with handsewn faux pearls.
I photographed this beautiful ocean scene in New Zealand.
Model: Sarah Schroder

In all of my artwork, I, Susan Schroder, am the artist and photographer. All elements of my work are original to me.
I do not use stock photography or stock art.
I am the photographer for all background elements and also the model in the image.
The fantasy effects that are not photographic are digitally painted by me, as well. That includes the fairy wings.

Beautiful work but I find the detail on the dress a little distracting and takes away from the overall smoothness of this piece (just my opinion thought)

Thanks for your comment....it's always good to know how other people see an image. This picture was done for a clothing designer who made this dress, so I had no control over the appearance of the dress. She uses this image in her advertising.
I personally loved all the hand-sewn pearls that adorn the lower half of the gown and was my inspiration for the Ocean setting.

Thanks to all for the kind comments :)
Although quite a simple picture, this is a favorite for me of my own work.
