The Sweetest Gift

This is the seventh and final painting of this series inspired by my fiance, Rahisha and songs by Sade. The inspiriation was renaissance and impressionist paintings. I affectionately call her a “Queen” and this feeds in to how I treat her in the relationship and how I interpret her through my art. Like the painting I created of Solange my aim was to create a modern renaissance painting.I used a variety of brush options to achieve some elements of the piece that were blended and some that had more visible brush strokes. As always, since I work digitally I created many different veriosns. (and will probably make a few more) Art created using Procreate on iPad Pro.
