"Nymph of the Fields" (Detail) ©2019, Matthew Holden Bates, Firenze, Italia

Hey everybody! Glad to be back again today with another "close up" of one of my original oil paintings. "Nymph of the Fields" is part of a diptych painting that I made of the same statue seen from two different views. Here is what the diptych looks like with both canvases:

The detail featured in this post is from the statue on the left of the composition.

You can acquire a giclee print of the diptych from Curioos out of New York at this address:

Fantasy is something I really enjoy! It is one of my delusions and this painting is not far behind. I like how you have painted the texture it has is fantastic.

I had a lot of fun with the backfround, which is totally invented. The statue is exists, it is in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

His work is great because it seems that I'm looking at a statue and not a painting. :)

So beautiful, I love the articulation of her fingers and of the folds in her clothes very much :) You captured the shading very wonderfully !

Grazie!!!!!! I am glad you like it!! :)
