Hi! It's been a while! (Same old intro, I need to stop doing this. )
First, yes, I know that her right hand is sort of longer as compared to the correct anatomical proportions, but I intended to make it appear like that to maintain the overall balance of the painting... and some other personal reasons.
Inspired by: This photo from tumblr: [link] where I got the inspiration for part of my subject's clothes and pose. I had to change the face and basically everything else, though.
And this song from Florence and the Machine: [link]
Right now, this is all what my camera could afford to take, which is only 90% of what it originally looks like. The details are sharper in real life. I'll try to upload a better photo later when I finally have the time.
I noticed the length of the hand and liked it. I haven't felt as into a piece of art as this one in a while. I love the style of your painting, the almost paper mache-like layering is uncommon and I like the things that inspire your works! I listened to some of Her Space Holiday
My subject was basically about waking up from a deep long slumber after all the chaos or bliss that she had been through. It's like, when people have those mixed feelings that they tend to almost lose their minds to get things right before the day ends. But due to frustration, nothing was actually done. So they just fall asleep tired from everything. And then the next morning, everything's gone. It's like you've just been reborn into something, but what happened the day before is still in the past and you can't change that. Yet, you are calmer and you see things in a clearer perspective. I'm really terrible at explaining things, I'm really sorry if I can't make you understand what I'm trying to say. But still, thanks for your comment, I really appreciate it!
