Albayde Original

Here is the original face detail from the painting “Albayde” by Alexandre Cabanel. You can see the subtle changes in the nose, lips and eyes which I re-created in my own tribute version (previous post). My next post will feature a full version of the new painting. Stay tuned. Thanks for your interest in my work. Please visit my website, linked at the right.

Albayde by Cabanel

Albayde by Inglis

I have been compelled to re-imagine another master work, this time its Albayde by Alexandre Cabanel. I spent many hours reworking the face. Whether its an improvement or not, who can say? I found it interesting that Cabanel and I share some astrological similarities. Maybe he wouldn’t mind my re-envisioning his work. This is a close up of the face. Next post will feature the whole piece. I mostly work with Corel Painter, using blenders and airbrushes, working over the surface many times to get just the right look.
