when i read The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler, i wanted to do a painting of the two femmes fatales - Vivian and Carmen Sternwood.
the chair and some parts of carmen's pose were sourced from a stock image (by *faestock [link]
) that doesn't seem to exist anymore.
most of this picture, particularly the lighting was made up as i went, so it might be a bit inconsistent or unrealistic, haha
but as always i am very open to ANY kind of feedback, so if something looks off to you, please let me know and i may be able to fix it later.
i think i'm not painting in this style again, it takes too long!
i had trouble with shadows/colours on different monitors. basically you should be able to see some stripes on the back wall (left side particularly), and they should fade to shadow (or at least quite dark) by the right side of the wall.
