A portrait from a photo [link] I was very kindly given permission to use as reference by DeviantArt member Avriah, who as you can see, is not only extremely pretty, but is also a talented photographer and poet, so thanks go to her, thank you .
Thanks James, I've been a professional artist for a lot of years now, and she is something else, a muse , like Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Vermeer's the girl with the pearl earring or Gaugin's Polynesian girl etc.. you know? It just makes you want to paint to your best ability and beyond your best capabilities. It sounds pretty weird (also sleazy I suppose, but not) but as an artist, it's a very infrequent occurrence and you have to glean every moment of it! I think you understand coz ur brill!
I totally understand what you are saying. I too have been dumbstruck by the beauty of certain women. Lets face it, from a man's point of view, women are the most perfect and sublimely beautiful creation of the universe. Also check out Leija Turunen's channel on YouTube
