    let me be the first to congratulate you :) This is an outstanding piece of art Tahnja. I REALLY LOVE IT !

  • Elisabeth!!! so glad you got to comment first…and what a BEAUTIFUL comment it is too. After lots of tweaking I think I got my face somewhere that I liked it and didn’t fiddle with it any longer lol. I like the expression and the softness of the look in the eyes. Finally was able to do something with the background that I liked….that was a bit of a journey lol

    Fabulous color and pose and I love the art nouveau touch!

  • Hello Tammy lovely lady! The art nouveau inspiration came from Frannie as she has been working on a piece of me in this style and I was inspired to do it for this piece. It was a lot of fun getting my skin tone right as I’m so tanned from working outside with the racehorses….very happy with how it turned out.

    Thank you so much beautiful lady!

    I love your series on Eve. Very original! And the reference to Art Nouveau are elegent. One of my favorites!

  • It’s turning out to be very inspiring this series. I have two more orders of my blonde model for Eve Approaching Adam and another private commission. Very happy about that!

    Thank you so much for your tireless support dear friend. The art nouveau style is ageless isn’t it? I think I will do some more later…I have great poses stashed away in my private collection…I’d like to use more of them for this style.

    Stunning art-work Tahnja wow love the pose.

  • Aww thanks hunny! I love trying poses for future paintings. I had this one stashed away with a bunch of poses I was trying and felt it worked really well for this style. I’d like to use more of my own images before I get too old to try anymore lol

    Beautiful Eve, at the moment she becomes sensitive to her nakedness, and fabulous styling in Art Nouveau. Perfect, Tahnja!

  • Yes, the facial expression works well for that moment…and thank you so much for art nouvea inspiration. It wouldn’t have occurred to me to try it if you hadn’t brought it to mind. I think the design and final painting turned out better than I could have hoped for. Had to do lots of adjusting as you could see from the WIP but so happy with it in the end

    The choice for the background hues is excellent.I especially like the face, attitude, and detail of the hallo.Your skin colors are so beautiful and true.Bravo!

  • It didn’t need much did it? The gold touch was all it needed I thought, anything else was taking away from the painting and I didn’t like it so ended up with just hints of gold. It was a wonderful new experience to paint my tanned skin and I was really happy with how well I was able to adjust my colours to get it right. I really appreciate that you noticed that, thank you so much Elena!
