A melancholic portrait inspired on the Red Riding Hood fairytale.
The big challenge here was to approach my character’s feelings, making them look natural.

Once upon a rose
After painting self-portraits of classical painters, I come with something very personal.
I always wanted to paint things related flowers, and here is my little fairytale: a mysterious character whose story is related to a rose. She is warm and passionate and you will never know what she is capable of.
Real round oil and Fine tip soft airbrush, my fav brushes on Painter 12. Found out each of them alone doesn’t give maximum performance. The two combined: the best of both worlds, for me! :)
 Had reference for the pose/perspective.
