Bouguereau and his romantic visions


"After Bouguereau's Psyche et L'Amour" ACEO 2.5x3.5 inches

This is a cropped version of my latest painting. You can visit my Ebay listings if you'd like to see the whole piece. I do enjoy Bouquereau's figurative paintings as he is so good about capturing a moment which is what I try to do with my art. He had an excellent command of the human proportions though I do suspect he did them a bit stylized as they all look so perfectly attractive.
