Spanish Beauty 5 (3 pictures)

I recently had a photoshoot with a Spanish model with many faces. A few of the ‘off-shoots’ challenged me to work on her using graphics, layers, textures, etc. If you scroll back to part 3 you can see here in sequence where it can all end. While I was busy I had my mind set on Jacqueline, Countess of Hainaut, for the Dutch better known as Jacoba van Beieren and Queen Elizabeth II. Can you see it?

Unus Mundus

Somebody told me the other day that the average painter applies 6 to 7 layers before a painting is finished. I just applied the 75th layer to ‘Unus Mundus’ (One World) and still it’s far from ready. Layers, in my case, are photographs, drawings, textures, digital in-paintings, etc.

Guess I have another 30 to 40 layers to go. Plus some patching here and there.

The imaginary will be printed and framed in the size 180x120cm for a permanent exhibition (until sold) in one of the better art galleries in the Western Cape, South Africa. And there will be only one print available for their clients appreciate (and pay for, I hope 😉 ) exclusivity.

How does my layering work? In the past I already made a youtube with a very simplified example. See: The Meta Selfie
