SOUL SISTER - Little Archies Exhibition 29/8/10 by 

This is an acrylic painting I just completed of the gorgeous redbubble artist Tahnja who photographed herself for me so I could paint her. I so hope she likes this painting. Tahnja is a extremely talented painter so I hope I can get her approval on this painting. This is the photograph Tahnja took for me called
I Give You My All

The painting is 91 × 91 cm.

I will be entering this in the Continental Art Show 2010 in Sorrento in late May. I will put the price down at a later date.

Oh I forgot to mention that Tahnja is an artist, a singer, a musician, and a dressmaker of great talent. She is also amazingly beautiful in my eyes. I hope you love Soul Sister as I do.

    I’m just sitting here totally speechless and trying so hard to find the words to say…..I can’t say that I’ve see anything like the style you are able to create……i’ts stunning, spectacular and 91cm x 91cm us HUGE lol

    The colours are gorgeous. You have captured stunning lightness in the skin…..perhaps the hair on the right hand side could extend out to the edge of the painting instead of adding the green? Tends to add more light and interest to the face? Cover the area with your hand as you can see it on the screen and tell me what you think. This is NOT a criticism, just a suggestion. It’s BEAUTIFUL right now and incredibly skillful!!!!!!!

    Wow Billy, stunning work. I would be thrilled to know how this goes in the Art Show. You’re BRILLIANT Billy!

  • Thanks Tahnja, I just added the link to your photograph as well, check it out…goes straight to your photograph.

    Ok, I see what you mean. Mmmmmm, there are two things I am going to do tomorrow. After just looking at your photograph again. I am going to put more of your hair up in the corner and cover that space. I noticed its whispy there and not so flat lined with the hair, plus I also noticed the bottom line that circles..will do that tomorrow. It will then be finished. Thanks for the help. I might have to put a good price on this one because its such a labor of love. B

  • Hhey Tahnja, I did it today. Re-did the hair and then glazed the painting twice. I think it looks even better! Can’t wait to show you, however, just got a call from the Alfred Hospital!!! Looks like I am going to have surgery tomorrow. So will upload finished work next week. Looks absolutely fabulous! Can’t wait to show you. Love Billy. P.S. I am so anxious . Billy

    Also can’t wait to Varnish it and make it pop even more! First will fix the hair a little as you are right there. B Any chance of another photo shoot with the guitar, I want to paint guitars forever now!

    Yes, it’s wonderful, there’s no point in selling such beautiful art for too cheap. Oh and I see what you mean about the circles…I missed that! Such great teamwork…..and of course I can do another shoot with my guitar…..why not, I love doing this. Will have to think of some more poses that might work best for you
