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.
