This one was an experiment in painting basically two colours with different tones. I will probably try a similar technique on my next big painting. Glad you like it and thanks for faving. :hug:

If you look at the reference pic (in the text somewhere) it may be a bit clearer. There is actually only one on show, the 'other' is an arm! I think I could have made it all a bit clearer - it does look more realistic in the life size canvas. Thanks for looking in anyway. :beer::-)

her photo is poorly posed it seems. whoever took that pic never took a composition class.

Probably, but it did have something about it that gave me inspiration.

The body anatomy seems strange. She looks like both breasts are on the same side, and that upper hand doesn't seem to belong to her body. When I first looked @ this picture, I thought she was clutching her shoulder, not her shoulder blade/back. I think that's b/c the wings are placed closer to her spine than her shoulder blade.

The face, wing, and bg are gorgeous thou'

I guess it looks clearer on the actual canvas - I can never get a good photo image of paintings. I tried to get as close as possible to the reference piece (linked in the text), but did find it difficult to work out how wings could practically fit the human back. I suppose this is why most fairy pictures are taken from the front!
Thanks for looking in anyway. :-)

Haha, there's prolly a lot of truth in that! I suggest (though you prolly already thought of it) that since wings are actually an extra set of arms, the best place to 'hook 'em in' would be at the shoulder blade.
