Cast painting

Finally a finished version of the statue painting I did. It's about time I put up a post of some classical non-digital art. It was fun and challenging to paint, especially around the face with all of it's detail and subtle color changes. I am still learning how to take good photographs of my work, this doesn't really do it justice I assure you. The background is a flat color but it all catches the light different to produce this lovely ocean wave background, maybe it's a happy accident. Whatever, just don't click on them because they look pretty good as small icons.

well Dave, I'm impressed by your lightings and kind of reflections... this is simply awesome man!!!
it's some kind of hyper realism, that's why I was asking about Chuck Close last time...
It's clear that you've done great and subtile color works on the neck and the chin...
this piece is great!!
bravo Dave!!

So I'm confused... did you sculpt the thing or just take a picture of it? Either way, I'm so impressed that I've been crying for the last hour. Goodness, Dave... you're incredible!
