Phoenix Rising

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph and create this art piece for this introverted, budding artist. Her original dress was green, which went well with her hair and skin tone BUT I thought “what if” and tried the red tones. It all came together and after many, many hours of painting fabric, this luminous mermaid-esque, ethereal figure emerged. Custom brushes using an Art pen with the Wacom Intuos Pro medium tablet were used after compositing several fabric photographic references in Adobe Photoshop/Adobe Lightroom.
