study after Millais study for Ophelia – conte on paper
millais, ophelia, woman
lovely.did you watch desperate romantics?
yes i did! it was not bad at all – a bit shmoltzy, in truth i only really like the one painting from the brotherhood and it’s the one this drawing refers to… :) i always found it wonderfully haunting

Beautiful work Loui.
thanks Varry you know i always appreciate your comments… :)
Such a lovely portrait
i love to love that true romatic stuff (but for me it needs a gothic twist) that eternal pale beauty that one can never have even if one thinks one attains it, it becomes something else always beyond reach, denial is a worthy trait, melancholia can be soooo uplifting…eh eh another oxy moron by loui the moron…
Again, absolutely adorable! ;-)
I love the Millias portrait, too, of Ophelia. I visit the Tate Gallery in London’s Pimlico Millbank area; and, see the original, being exhibited there, regularly. Furthermore, Shakespeare is my fav. poet in the whole wide world!
wow i envy you for being able to do that wish i could i consider it one of my top 10 favorite paintings of all time….and i too love the Bard above all …thanks Paul
