A mi dejame en el mar by TomasProchazka A mi dejame en el mar by TomasProchazka
True title: "A mí, déjame en el mar"

A painting based on Young Tarentine (marble sculpture, 1871) by Alexandre Schoenewerk, but with a galatean tweak. I enjoyed painting the subtle varieties of white colors, and the perfect pose.

Oil on canvas
150x85cm
2012

Wonderful work!
Just lovely the way you've gone from the look of cold stone on the body to warm flesh on her hand.
Frozen in time :) I love what you have done here :)

i really like the fact NOT to know if life is pouring out of her or pouring in into her - throughout her right hand... :love:

This happens to me in many paintings, It is very hard to indicate direction. But yes, thay provides some mystery and leaves it to the imagination of the spectator, which is nice. Thanks for your interesting comments!

Soemtimes I use glazing and sometimes I paint Alla Prima. In this case I used a mix of both. Sorry for the late response X).
