I agree completely that people should admit to, and acknowledge their mistakes. There is no harm or shame in doing so. I was talking to someone once where they said that admitting to a mistake shows weakness.... ... that just floored me....
Anyway, that’s great you found another inspiration! I think it’s a good one... obviously!
"Never seen her work before" ??? I'm sorry but I find that really hard to believe! Because you used almost every little thing that distinguishes her touch But oh well, I just thought of pointing that out, sorry if that bothered you.
Honestly, no, I don't think I ever have. I can't say for certain of course. But at very least, it wasn't intended to be a copy of styles... I have a few other pieces in my gallery of the same type of subject (pretty woman, dark 'gothic', portrait) - it's just what I like doing in between illo assignments.... to actually use a real brush and real paint (not to mention trying to paint something I find attractive)...
But like I said, I appreciate that you did point it out, I do want to look into her work more, so not a bother at all!
I don't why you hid that other long comment of yours, but here's my reply to it and I hope you don't hide this as well
"I didn't call you a liar, it's just too hard to believe what you're saying! and I've looked at some arts by the artists you mentioned, still couldn't find the similarity I found in your work! Maybe Sylvia was a bit inspired by those, but she developed her own unique style and I found it here
she paints on wood and let me point out what I found so similar in your art to hers: - the shape of the circles around the eyes, shapes around the nose and the mouth. - the flower in the hair - the shape on her forehead
You don't have to reply to this comment, and again I'm not accusing of being a liar. All the best "
I simply hid my comment because I felt it was continuing and escalating the discussion in the wrong direction... it was a knee-jerk reaction. (perhaps a bad day in general). But I don't think I hid any of yours....
