Always forever... by crayonmaniac Always forever... by crayonmaniac
I have been painting this for such a long time and today I finally finished it, I had a long day alone. I really love this work, I am a romantic and there is something very special about true love... :heart:

References for the pose and well reference for the faces too but one can no longer see the likenesses

It has been a long long dream of mine to paint something Victorian and now i did, I love the feel of those old photographs. I love the way the photographers slightly colored the sepia pictures, I tried to reproduce it here. I worked with noise to create his tweed suit.

Thanks for all the love you are giving this new painting

************************************

Note for all Elizabeth Peters fans : I know this is not totally the correct Emerson and Amelia as described by her, for one Emerson should have piercing sapphire eyes but this does not suit my color scheme so i took artistic license and amelia should be short, a real shrimp that one with her tallie but then i would have had problems with my reference pic and I wanted this one to be just right for my friend :heart:

*****************************************

I realise this is a really small upload but when i upload a bigger version it is horrible, the pixels are so horrible in color, i do not know how why this happens

*******************************************

Don't steal my art and do not use it for you own purposes without asking me first :nod:

So I just discovered this painting too. Beautiful vintage look with just a touch of something not quite just human to them. I like it a lot.
