Wonderful piece. Color you use almost conflicts with the softness in her expression... that duality is a woman. Is her hair digital?

Yes, the hair texture was applied using Corel Painter. I created a separate layer and using black I applied a "brush". The brush is in the category "F-X", variant "Furry Brush". I selectively twirled different areas of the "hair" thus obtained with another brush, "Distorto". Later I applied Effect->Lighting from a selected angle.

Ohhhh... Thank you for describing your technique... I really don't understand it though. I am old and use paint brushes. When I looked at her hair close up, I was thinking about how long that would take me to do with paint!!! Either way, what you have created is a work of beauty!

Wow.. I really like this. How did you get that hair texture, it totally makes the painting more interesting 'cause it looks like real hair!

Hi! ..glad you liked it. The hair texture was applied using Corel Painter 11. I created a separate layer and using black I applied a "brush". The brush is in the category "F-X", variant "Furry Brush". I selectively twirled different areas of the "hair" thus obtained with another brush, Distorto. Later I applied: Effect->Lighting from a selected angle... and voila! :hug:
