First in the series – Drink me

A second in a digital painting series of an Alice in Wonderland style scene.

There are three elements to this painting.
The reference shots are:-
1/ The background which is a B&B in Cambridge I took back in 2010.
2/ The model, who also happens to be my partner and fiance who tolerated me throwing some material on her and shoving a wig on her head. That’s not a dress she is wearing but three pieces of material clamped together on the side you can’t see.
The rest was collectively 4 hours in photoshop – over 4 months using various brushes.

I hope you like it.

Canon 5dMkii, 24-70mm at 50mm, f/8, 160 sec exposure, ISO 100 for the background.
Canon 5dMkii, 24-70mm at 50mm, f/8, 80th sec exposure, ISO 100 for the background with strobes.

    Great work.
