acrylic on plywood 9x15

this is the latest challenge of Karin Jurick's Different Strokes From Different Folks blog.
She provided the picture of the marble statue of "a companion of Diana".
Diana was the goddess of the hunt and the moon, and daughter of Jupiter and Latona.
It was the 1st time I had the opportunity to paint a statue, I enjoyed it, and gave me the idea to paint another biggest one to put in a nude alcove we have in our garden...

This is my 1st attempt for the april challenge Following The Masters set up by Michelle Burnett.
The original painting is by JW Waterhouse.
I was very attracted by this painting, the subject was delicate and rich in colour.I was very pleased to paint it, even if I had worries with the feet, it was the first time I had to do that, well, it is an opportunity, isn't?

Today we went to the first wine festival of the year in Blaye, the little city in the neighbourhood.

It was a sunny day, with a sky absolutely cobalt blue , the temperature about 21° .

There were a lot of wine-tasting sessions everywhere, big tables outside , where everyone could sit down ,eat, drink, meet new people, it was funny, it is the country!

When In the middle of the afternoon we came back home,we were glad to find several sailing boats on the river, in front of the house, towards Bordeaux, and enjoyed the remains of the day in the garden.


Well, of course, at that precise moment, the clouds arrive, but did not stay!

I painted only this morning, after “Narcissus” from JW Waterhouse.

I begun this drawing this morning, in fact it is a first sketch before painting, if I'll be able to.
I discovered this project on Michelle Burnett's blog, who made me the honour to become my 2nd follower;
I am very proud, because she is a very talentuous artist, I used to go often on her blog.
By the way, I changed the title of my blog, because my eyes 've been operated 2 days ago;(cataract)
for the moment I haven't my short vision, so it is hard to write and read , but I have to be patient.
Maybe, my world'perception is going to change, who knows?
