Borrowed a book on Frederick Leighton and his works, and now absolutely love his stuff, vibrant colours, awesome painting skills. Tried to do a black and white value study of one of his pieces, trying to use larger strokes to pull of the shiny drapery, it was a good study i think. I still get proportions horribly wrong.

My LMS piece for 'Underneath it all'. I always thought those Venitian Balls were kinda creepy, with ther masksand all. So I had this idea that they were all aliens,or a family of aliens that gather together and dance. So this picture is supposed to be a moment when they take off their masks, revealing their true form. I think I lost the message halfway, and its hard for anyone to make sense of it, haha. I really enjoyed working on this piece though.
