Gypsy by jezviking Gypsy by jezviking
*sold*

*update* Just resubmitting this pic as I have a better photo of it where you can actually see it :)

I really quite like this painting. I am yet undecided on wether to add a basket of flowers that has tipped over and scattered, just to bring some of the red and yellow colour across the bottom of the painting. Opinons? Regardless, I will take a better photo of it when my folks come down, their camera has way more MPs than my shite one. I'll be able to take better pics of all my paintings and if they turn out okay I will probaly submit them for prints.

Reference [link] by the beautiful :iconnikitty-stock: Thankyou for your inspirational poses!

*edit* sorry it came out so dark, it's a rainy day today. Like I said, will update it when the olds come down.

I love the style of this painting. She's so long and lean, and her pose is fabulous. The colors are also eye-catching, and I adore the texture of the background.

The only thing I'm not sure I like is her little hat. For some reason I always picture gypsies bare-headed...

Hey thanks for the comment. :)

Yeah she was originaly bareheaded and was going to have a scarfy thing on, then I tried to make it into those head wrap thingos but it just came out like that, and I tampered with itmore and made it worse so I just left it lol otherwise it would've been a massive blob on her head

Awesome texturing on that wall,
I like how you centered the viewers focus on to her form, and the vibrant colours of her dress, or wrap. Also, I liked the pose you've chosen for your character.

thanks Gab the texturing was fun to do, did it with a pallette knife. I'm going to have another go at this painting, try to get her looking more realistic, which will give it a whole different style I guess but hey, practice practice.

I meant to comment on this earlier! I think this is one of your best works yet!! The basket of flowers would be a nice touch, but i really don't think it needs it. I like the asymetrical positioning and her expression is priceless.
