Nouveau


















This was my entry for an 'Art Nouveau' contest on DeviantArt. I used Ida Mary Walker's stock photo reference for the figure. I played around so long with the background embellishments, and looked at so much art nouveau reference material that I never, ever want to do anything in this style again...

me of spinach flavored pasta. (I think it is the color)

nice colors
the pale gold is really subtle.

That's a shame, because this looks really, really good. Love all the detail.
