1850 - Sometimes one has suffered enough... by salierifemme91
1850 - Sometimes one has suffered enough...
OMG... It feels good to finally upload something here!

Okay, so this is a painting in a style and form much appreciated during the Regency and Victorian period - an oval, often miniature, portrait. This is part one of the series, there will be seven more of these. This one represents 1850s.

This painting proved to be quite a challenge, cause I've had my ups and downs during creating it. It was started a long, looong time ago and later neglected... I'm sorry to myself. ;p But it was also fun once I got to painting and I certainly enjoyed working on it. I know it's not perfect, but I've had enough of it for now. ;p Constructive criticism however is always welcome - empty hate not so much. :)

Who is on the painting? My model was Roxane le Texier, a very beautiful and talented Belgian singer/actress/model. If you're familiar with French musical stage you probably know her from a phenomenal comedie musicale "1789. Les Amants de la Bastille" where she played queen Marie Antoinette d'Autriche - my favourite Antoinette ever. :)

As for historical accuracy - I'm a costume historian and I specialize in the 19th century so you can more or less count on me, although I confess to taking some liberties with the bold colors and unique necklace. Eh, whatever, I can do what I waaaaant!!!! :D

Okay, one more thing - this is fully dedicated to WONDERFUL :iconingvild-s:, who has become my absolutely best friend here on DA and in general as well. Dear Iggy, you inspired me to do better and push myself further, you're a fenomenal artist and SUCH A GOOD FRIEND! This is for you, love you and thank you! :huggle:
And srsly, go check out her account, she's insanely talented! Especially if you're into Tolkien!

The title is a quote from The Black Tulip by A. Dumas.
Beautiful face of Roxane is hers entirely.
ART IS MINE! I do not tolerate theft, so be warned! I'll bring my army of angry labradoodles in hipster glasses on your head if you steal from me! They weild mini-Orcrists people! :D

Awww, thank You. I will, once I have sth worth showing. I was actually thinking of uploading WiPs and scrapping them later, once the final piece is uploaded... What do You think of that? Or should I keep the WiPs on my Tumblr account?

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! 

P.S
Yay!! I looove poland! and your fucking awesome language! :hug: you are sooo awesome, I also really looove your art! <33 :D
