:bulletgreen: This is my version of a very old renaissance art done by William-Adolphe Bouguereau and I took my own spin on it. I drew this for fun. I really am proud of the flowers, because I am trying to work on plant life and animals in my drawings, please let me know what you think of this.

:bulletgreen: comments and critiques are most welcome.

Looking through your gallery, this one really hit me. I can really appreciate the time you took working with the PS brushes to recreate a classic painterly feel, especially where you've "turned your edges" on the arms- an expression my painting master used to use to describe blending edges with a fan brush in oil. Great composition, too - I'm not familiar with the original piece, but I think this stands well on its own too. :)

I really like this piece. The shading is beautiful. It has a wonderful dreamlike quality and is very much in the style of some of the old masters. I think you are doing a great job with your flowers. I love roses and you did a very good job on capturing such a complex flower.

Totally off topic, but I love your signature.. as an adult of ADD I would like to say that .. oooh look a butterfly. ;)

I have submitted this artwork to the thumbshare forum as one of my favourite underappreciated artworks [link]. I hope this is okay and also hope that your artwork gets the attention it deserves. Although this forum can only be used by subscribed deviantART members, it is an opportunity to be featured in the News Journal 'Digital Friday
Favorites' [link] (the most recent version). The next Journal to be published will be the 33rd edition and can also be accessed from :iconjunkbyjen: [link]. Good luck! :)
