Reverie by Jean Hildebrant

Currently unavailable for purchase

I shot this in natural light from a window and reflected light back on the model with a mirror on the opposite side of her. Adjustments made in PSCS3. This was “painted” with my Wacom Bamboo tablet using Corel Painter Essentials 4. This is my second attempt and I have so much to learn but I’m having a blast with my new Christmas present!! I wanted this to look like an oil painting and I used the oil paint>tapered camel hair brush for most of the paiinterly effects.

I am an artist working in oils and pastels as well as photography. My subject matter is mainly portraiture and figures. I have been painting for many years and have won awards for my paintings including a first place award in the Pastel Journal Magazine’s Pastel 100 competition and first place in the Richeson 75 competition.
I am married with two grown children and reside in Scottsdale, AZ.

    Ditto the “beautifuls” from up above…. but especially for the rich silk veneer that you’ve created for that skirt. It shimmers spectacularly.
