This image was put up for a challenge in an Art page I frequent.
It was black and white and I loved the style
The image and the idea that I could be creative with it was a nice incentive. It was a black and white photograph and the composition really appealed to me.
I did it in acrylic paint without any retarder, you have to be fast with the skin tones and any blending. Using Oil paint may have been easier, but I do like the vibrance and sharpness of the colour using acrylic paint.
