WIP still of Bouguereau's "Portrait de Gabrielle Cot" that I worked on this afternoon. The morning was taken with The ART Lounge Gallery updates, news, correspondence, phone calls and a class, so not much progress was made. That's ok. I like to start fresh in the early morning anyway, and hopefully I will finish Miss Gabrielle tomorrow! There is hair and lace and final touches to the ear and face. I do love Bouguereau, and reproducing his work is like a ballet or a symphony (be aware that I can neither dance, nor sing!). There is a certain rhythm to his use of cool/warm in the flesh that I find so appealing, and it is becoming more familiar to me. I deliberately left this larger than I normally do, so the colors will hopefully show to better advantage. Bing brings you maps, menus, and reviews organized in one place. Try it now.
