I need a distraction from my other projects, which I cannot force myself to work on so I’ve decided to join in the fun.
I tried to restrain myself with the choice but I simply cannot let the opportunity to tackle one of my favourite paintings ever pass me by. I’ve always wanted to have a go at it but the idea of texturing it was too much. I will therefore make a modeled/sculpted diorama only.
The painting is [b]The Fireplace by James Tissot[/b]. I can't deny that the fact that her face is not entirely towards the viewer is enticing too since I'm not a fan of self portraits as such and I won't post my mug here :P Anyway here's the painting. It's a killer with lots of guesswork so wish me luck and time hehehe. Thankfully I know enough about historical clothing to know what type of a dress that is - so references for the back are aplenty. That's one problem solved ;)
