Ophelia by Bonniemarie Ophelia by Bonniemarie
My first time painting with oils! Think I am now addicted!

I couldn't start painting with oils without doing a classical painting so I decided to do a copy of John William Waterhouse's Ophelia, not quite like the original but I am proud of it.
Worked on it for just over a week, spending 1-2 hours on it almost everyday.

It will hang in my mum's bathroom :)

Oil?  I haven't attempted that in ages!  You did really good!  I like it a lot.  Definitely has that classical look to it.

the only thing I don't like about this is her forehead; I think it's too flat. But anyhow, this is a gorgeous painting!
