Diva by Raipun Diva by Raipun
A portrait of Marlene Dietrich. Oil on canvas. For the background I used Goldleaf to create a rich and glamourus atmosphere. Hope you like it.

I don't have words for how amazing your paintings are. And seeing the scale at which they're painted! I really love this one for the soft focus... really captures her elegance and the style of film from that period. Just stunning... I could go on :)

you are a fabulous artist! I have been seeing so much digital art, everywhere, which is a talent yes, but something about real art--with paint brush in hand----ahhhh, there's nothing finer to me. Bravo!

Haha, I am slowly making my way through your gallery, and this is certainly one of my favourites :heart: :heart:

I can't quite put my finger on what it is precisely that I adore about it so much - maybe the contrasts, maybe the heart-stopping detail, maybe the fact that it all just works ... whatever it is, I can't tear my eyes away!

Truly marvellous :heart:
