Angel with an Apple by BluTack Angel with an Apple by BluTack
Edit: uploaded a higher res pic

oil on canvas
20" x 30"

this took about 3 weeks to paint, plus another
5 days before that to do some preliminary drawings.
it was inspired a lot by the work of Mark Ryden, DaVinci, Raphael, and Fragonard.

thanks for looking :)

Thoroughly impressive painting man. Is this eve's apple and you are suggesting that the temptation was delivered directly from an angel rather than picked from a tree? Everything about this totally nails the renaissance feel. I love it
