I was commissioned by an Italian restaurant to paint something portraying "Classical Indian dance but also showing movement yet there is none." I walked out scratching my head but I eventually got an idea and this is the result. They also wanted a lot of detail so I took a couple of weeks to do this, they were pleased and for once I was as well. I feel the need to share it with the world
This is absolutely gorgeous!!
brilliant!! very colorful. Love it!!
so vibrant and beautiful!
very successful picture , great
I'm always inspired by other cultures. This is amazing! And having good art and photography on restaurant walls helps keep my eyes and mind busy while I enjoy my meal.
I've always found women from other cultures captivating.
And there's no photo under this or anything?!
This is magnificent. I'd say you captured the idea pretty well. It'll make a great addition to the restaurant.
Beautiful! I'm so amazed at your talent!
Wow this is really beautiful.
I love how the red and gold colors really appeal to the eye. they draw your attention in.
This is so beauiful. Who wouldn't have the need to share this with the world?
What an unusual brief! I think it's great though. The colours and expression and the fabrics all suggest movement.
this is gorgeous! you got the sari perfect, and the details are amazing^^ it looks like a picture.
Out of curiosity, is there a reason for the wedding attire?
this is not wedding attire, wedding attire is usually more extensive and includes a nose pin connected to the earring. she is actually just wearing a typical dress that would be for special occasions, such as a party or, it this case, a dance performance.
Amazing that you painted this. From the thumbnail, I thought it was a photoshopped picture. It's beautiful!
from thumbail i thought it was a photo!
so beautiful! i love so much the warm colors, the beautigul woman and the dress! congrats for the DD!
Beautiful, I love it.
I think you succeeded in showcasing movement. Quite a beautiful picture, actually. I love the colors.
I have to say, I just love the life and movment in this piece, it makes me want to get up and dance.
gorgeous, very eye-catching
It's so amazing!!!!
When I saw the picture I assumed it was photo and was going to comment on what a great photo it was, the fiery colours, how you captured the motion, the woman caught up in the enjoyment of her dance, but then I read your description and learnt it was a painting... well... what can I say, this is most certainly a daily deviation well deserved.
exquisite work! you should be pleased, it is very pleasing to the eye, beautiful piece of work
I seriously thought this was a photograph. Beautifully done. The colors, the lighting, the dress, the movement.. all gorgeous!
Give me a moment to find my speaking capabilities that has promptly vacated my brain due to the sheer beauty of this masterpiece...
amazing! well done
beautiful - you captured the movement really perfect and I especially like the warm colors and the joyful expression on her face while dancing - and of course the amazing details (as the light playing on the little gold plates on the skirt or how you created the background)
Absolutely beautiful!! I can't believe it only took you a couple weeks!
Wow, this simply breathtaking! I love the color and detail of your piece.
really great piece
Wow, what a commission request. You answered it beautifully, though, this is amazing! You and your customers have every right to be pleased, brilliantly done.
