After this dull series of tortured rant and gray atmospheres, I thought that a little bit of color would not hurt anyone :)
Here are two small sized canvas painted with oil. You can click on the images to zoom in!
First, the little thingy on the right is a fan-art of a talented illustrator from who I kinda borrowed an original drawing some time ago. This was a wink at her Red Corset, that has been a real fun to make and a pleasure to send to Kmye, after that charming encounter in real life back in december. Her talent shines even more after realizing that I couldn't express the same melancholic sensuality that her character displays.
The "big" green painting _ it's 30cm /11 inches wide _ was made a much longer time ago, in 2005 if I remember well. Back then it was a commission from my cousin Karelle to illustrate a song named "La dormeuse du val", inspired by Arthur Rimbaud's famous poem.
The painting was done in about 3 sessions, which makes it more like a sketch than a finished work to me. I would have loved to make the lush more realistic, add rays of light falling down and a bit of heat glow.
