Such talent here. And so many modest people! LOL.

I saw this saying many years ago, and its still true: "Creativity never sings, until the inner critic is silent."

How true is that! Hugs and much love to all.

Starting to see the end of my forgery underpainting. I still have no idea how to glaze, otherwise she might already be a strawberry blonde. So much left to do. Sandro Botticelli Portrait of a Young Woman (Simonetta Vespucci). She was a muse of Botticelli. The poor girl died in her early 20's. I started painting on January 8th. Parts of the braid, cameo and blouse yet to be touched by paint.

Beautiful QuinnCat. Undoubtedly much to be learned as you study Botticelli. You are putting your learning into practice. The piece is already beautiful, and even if it were never finished it would still be beautiful.

Thanks FF. I will finish. Our little small town atelier has invitations to "big city" galleries on the table (one in NYC). Not that my painting will be chosen, but I want to at least try. We have some people who have been with this teacher for 5 years and were already artists to start with. I'm a rank beginner, but love it. I would never have thought I'd paint something like this, but the more I looked and looked for a candidate from the old masterpieces (need a hi res jpeg and for it to be free of copyrights), they all started growing on me. (Never did take a class in Art History.) My life will not be long enough to do all of the forgeries I would want to do!

Quinn, Really interesting to see how beauty standards change over time. Her nose is especially different from what's considered beautiful today. And I'm sure she was the very height of beauty in her time. Perhaps if we wait long enough, short and tubby will come back and I'll be in style.

Well, I fixed her nose today, in class Wren!! LOL! Does it look any better? She's Italian!

She was the muse for Botticelli's Birth of Venus (just her face shown) and another portrait:

Actually, it does look better with skin coloring. She was really beautiful. My mother's nose looked a lot like that. I have a photo done in black & white and later colored. She died when I was four, so I have just a few, but vivid, memories of her. One was long polished nails. I've never been able to keep mine nice like that.
