Re: A painting study!

Ohohoou, what a powerfull / classical look.
What is her character's, persona's story?

One more comment: is that frame size-wise the whole painting or a fragment of original?
Here is an idea that i got while looking at your work. It seems as if this image could be taken even further on - lets suppose she is somehow painted in full
or close to full height figure and with some smart mathematics book in her hand, lets say some classical mathematicians work like Euler's or Newton's. What an effect
that would be - a nun with something like that and painted in exact manner as you/Nicolas did :bow:

I found the painting on a youtube video

Re: A painting study!

I like your nun version more than original somehow. Probably maybe because the way how in your vervePainting black head clothing quite easily may be
looked upon alternatively and simultaneously as two things - either as a clothing or as a black hair. And in case of black hair that makes her even look younger, giving
face a properties of a happy face. So in your version it can be kind of both, which seems interesting to me, effect-wise. I perfectly understand that probably you could
be more up to looking opposite effect, trying to repaint 1 : 1 the original, clothing effects including.

But i think that is the kind of a whole nun thing point - to cover natural beauty quite as much as possible, i guess, in a way to facilitate an "interface" for any public space
dialogues being maximized towards everything intellect, philosophy engaging with any other our species walking, living, talking unit rather than accentuate/hijack attention
on natural roundness understandable beauties which naturally can make interfering effect on any effort of sustaining really, really deep intellectual, philosophically hard, detailed,
engaged, careful in details dialogue or mind exchange, so to speak.

It is possible to imagine a form of futuristic, science-based and informed society, were men and woman in public spaces all are dressed more like nuns or Buddhist monks consciously,
while perfectly familiar with naked beauties in their bedrooms, and sustaining something of a society where robots, automation is sanely applied and intelligence and natural sciences
are widespread popularity and occupies much of social value system, dress-code and public space informational content.

You see how positive your image is :) ?
Hail to nuns with smart, scientific books in their hands 8-)

(P.S:.... maybe sometimes later i will paint an image of that futuristic society i described; ...seems idea stuck with me right now)
