This piece was inspired by Kate Thompson’s class in Studying Under the Masters. The artist she had chosen was Francoise de Felice. Francoise creates beautiful paintings. The pattern on the neck is from a William Morris print. The substrate is cradled wood with Venetian plaster and stencils. Lots of transparent layers; painted with Golden Open Acrylics. I admire Francoise’s work very much and found this piece enjoyable to paint!
