Portrait of Maria

I was inspirited by old Dutch Renaissance Masters and Flemish Renaissance painting. I really love that dark background and drapery, how candle light lies on fabric… So I took my little sister and dress her in some red and white fabric with lace. We took a couple of photos and I started to paint.

I tried to be slow and accurate in details and movements. I started with a face and hand – all that skin color and gradients, than I painted all fabrics and in the end – background.

I hope all that look like Flemish Renaissance painting)

I really loved painting in such style, so I´m not going to stop on this portrait and soon will show you second work.

When I was searching for an inspiration I found that so many people admire this epoch and style. Maybe that´s because it is so mysterious and full of symbols and darkness. Here are some people and projects in this style.

Thank you
