I'm still studying the Old Masters over at Mary Gibilisco's site and having a ball!! This one was a challenge as it was quite tall for me 17x 28 while sitting in the wheelchair. I turned it upside down a lot. Mary does that a lot anyways when she paints. I invite comments and critiques.

Robynann,

Lovely work. Love how you painted her eyes looking up.  I have never tried to do that.

The blue satin is beautifully done. Gold lace mantilla is painted so well.

Except for the two rows of slanted gray blocks on the wall (brick ones look fine), I'd say this is darn near perfect.  Were the bricks that way on the reference?  Maybe they are slanted for design???

Thanks so much Mea... LOL Nooo That was me Messin up. I'm using Genesis Paints and you heat set them to dry the paint and I had heat set the painting and then discovered I made the mistake!! :idiot2: Oh sure I could have fixed it but that would have meant a repaint of that whole section I thought to make it look right. I just got lazy. Plain and simple total laziness took over!! LOL

I'd have said the stone mason that helped build the wall had one leg shorter than the other and he therefore saw the world with a tilt!  :whistle:

It is a gorgeous panting regardless Robyn, the best to date.  O0     :clap: :clap: :clap:

Did you mean Eugene de Blaas, or Eugene von Blaas?  An Italian painter from mid-1800 to realy 1900?

I am very poor at art history. I enjoy reading it, but I don't make the effort to store in my memory to recall who did what.. no exam to pass at PB 😊

Your painting is main subject is very well done.  Haha for the wall... I think it is the mason guy's who had a drink to many!

I just think the details in the background compete with your main subject.  I wanted to see if this was the way Eugene did it, but I cannot find the original to compare.  I will try again on the WWW.

Bravo!  I am very impressed you are tackling the great master.  I love your confidence.
Cheers 🌹

You are so talented Robynann! Different subject compared to your beauties till now. This one has come out very well.Like Annie said, I also think a comparison to the original would be nice to see.  O0

Well done, Robynann  :clap:   Congratulations on your rendition of this.
There is just something about the left eyebrow/forehead that seems a little displaced to me, but it is difficult to see from  looking at the photo.
