Bretens Praying (Detail)

This took much more time than it should have.

It's a copy of this artist I just discovered: Pascal-Adolphe-JeanDagnan-Bouveret. I'm surprised I hadn't heard of him before. Really good stuff.

So I translated his oil painting into watercolor, but the paper buckled and apparently didn't like wet media very much, so I had to cheat and use pen for the black. I wanted to paint her whole body but with the way the paper reacted... it wouldn't have gone well. This thing is teeny tiny and will remain indefinitely unfinished.

and my left shift key is broken. nooooo =(
