The Lady in Roses

Hi Guys,

This is another piece from me and now I am a bit crazy with the halftone technique. It does make your drawing looking damn good. For real! So, as in my planning maybe in the next few days or weeks perhaps, I will reveal the best of Vanitas! 
vanitas, ( Latin , "vanity" ) Still Life, oil on wood by Willem Claesz Heda, 1634; in the Museum …
[Credit: Museum Boymans-van Beuningen, Rotterdam]in art, a genre of still-life painting that flourished in the Netherlands in the early 17th century. Avanitas painting contains collections of objects symbolic of the inevitability of death and the transience and vanity of earthly achievements and pleasures; it exhorts the viewer to consider mortality and to repent. The vanitas evolved from simple picture of skulls and other symbols of death and transience frequently painted on the reverse sides of portraits during the late Renaissance. It had acquired an independent status by c. 1550 and by 1620 had become a popular genre.See more here.

Yup, I already linked the blog owned by one of the Vanitas artist: Fernando Vicente. And here also, I provided with video on how to do halftone dot effects on your image/drawing and credit to Glazefolio Design Blog. Check these blogs out!

Below is the only Lady in Roses!
