William-Adolphe Bouguereau is my favorite classical painter, my interest in art starts with researching famous oil paintings to get a feel of color and perspective of the greats before I create my own oil portraits.

You will love this painting too

My interest in art started many years ago when I would draw pictures from comics and annual books including painting Disney Characters, I enjoyed copying the cartoons and changing their colors and poses, it was all groundwork for my later life when I created oil portraits of my family and our dog pets.

I have a collection of oil portraits created on linen canvas depicting the Royal family, these works include The Queen Princess Diana The Queen Mother and Prince William, you can see the Queen Mother here entitled celebrity art.

this painting shows one of my dog portraits in oil, background in this painting was essential for the completion of the painting, without the detailed chair detail and wall the work looked very flat.

 Polyhymnia, Muse of eloquence

  
I enjoy coying these famous paintings, I look at their creation especially the detail in the stonework, the swept golden gown is interesting the feet are painted very well as is the chair.
