I started this painting yesterday and finished it this evening. This is a study of William Bouguereau’s “A Dream of Spring”.
For this excercise, I decided to paint a portrait where the eyes are more open. The last two portraits I did, the subject was looking down so their eyes were obscured. Painting eyes without making them look creepy is challenging.
Now, for my travel related section. I decided to visit the Stibbert Museum which is a huge collection of Medieval armor from around the world. It was awesome there was armor, swords, guns, fine art, all the works. I didn’t quite catch all the history behind everything because the tour was in Italian.
