Goddesses - 2 multimedia fine art paintings...
Goddesses are always a favorite art motif; to test the obvious, just search online for "goddess". I've done 6 or 8 or so in the last couple of years, many of them being built up from my own prior sketches / paintings, put into a classic "goddess" motif. Here are 2 of my "earlier" art pieces...
traditional-modern acrylic/oil and original digital image
... an original multimedia fine art painting.
This picture is an original piece of computer-developed digital art, based on my earlier original acrylic/oil sketch on paper, a female nude standing. For the digital image I have used a motif by Bouguereau.
"Aphrodite was the ancient Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. She is identified with the planet Venus, which is named after the Roman goddess Venus, with whom Aphrodite was extensively syncretized. Aphrodite's major symbols include myrtle, roses, doves, sparrows, and swans. ... The cult of Aphrodite was largely derived from that of the Phoenician goddess Astarte, a cognate of the East Semitic goddess Ishtar, whose cult was based on the Sumerian cult of Inanna. Aphrodite's main cult centers were Cythera, Cyprus, Corinth, and Athens. In Laconia, she was worshipped as a warrior goddess."
Here is my earlier original acrylic/oil sketch of the model, and the classic version by Bouguereau.
Tasha, Standing - sketch, oil on paper.
Below, The Birth of Venus by William-Adolphe Bouguereau. Bouguereau employed traditional methods of working up a painting, including detailed pencil studies and oil sketches, and his careful method resulted in a pleasing and accurate rendering of the human form. His painting of skin, hands, and feet was particularly admired. He also used some of the religious and erotic symbolism of the Old Masters, such as the "broken pitcher" which connoted lost innocence.
The Birth of Venus by William-Adolphe Bouguereau, c. 1879
This is an original traditional-modern contemporary digital image, Lady of the Lake, accomplished in a traditional-modern style. The mythology of the Lady of the Lake was popularized during about the 12th century in the written-down tales of King Author, and has been a popular art motif ever since.
