I am obsessed with 18th century hairstyles, headdress, and wigs. In this painting I picture myself in such a coiffure but updated for the 21st century. I like to juxapose the antique with the modern.
Wonderfu portrait. With your double chin, flowing hair and plumes very much reminds me of some of the Vigee LeBrun protraits of Queen Marie Antoinette in 1787 and 1788 - hope you do a portrait of the Queen like this - think you'd do a great job!!
Oh, wow, thank you! Vigee LeBrun is a favorite artist of mine and very influential to my style, so nice to see you pick up on that. I'll be sure to draw/paint portraits of the Queen later this year!
I too so love Vigee LeBrun - especially her protraits of the Queen - I just sent you one - a close-up of Marie Antoinette from Vigee's 1787 portrait of her - so much like your own portrait - lovely!! Can't wait to see you draw /paint the Queen
Awesome! Love the colors and the style. =]
