"Spring" by Pifalo "Spring" by Pifalo
This is the first painting I did using reference. The face was from a picture from a Photographer here on DA, but their page is gone. The clothes, jewelry, flowers and background was taken from reference that I shot.

This painting is a bit of a milestone for me. It was the first painting so far that didnt make me want to quit.

15"x20" oil on illustration board

Thanks, I'm glad you like it. I was trying to make it look like green marble set in gold. I dont know, the color seems a little bright. As long as you like it though :)

I would like to say it was easy, but man would I be lying! I really did enjoy this painting while I was doing it, and I felt more confidence as I progressed. I'm glad you like it Furious, and thanks for looking :)
