Feet and Hands

I’m tired of painting from another person’s photographs so I took some myself, and the subject matter is myself, well, at least part of me.

I was inspired by this painting closeup.

Pierre Jean Van der Ouderaa - The King of Thule, 1896 (detail)

The detail and the translucency of the skin is just amazing. I hope to achieve anything remotely similar.

My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it.
