Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty

This is beautifully painted and full of interesting details. Love the view from the window and the positioning of the woman's hand - so natural. I keep finding so many things of interest, such as the little rug under her feet with that slight shadow. Great painting Robert.

Thank you for your kind comments Carole, I did have someone model for the figure but the rest is imagination

Really interesting to look at, quite thought provoking (like the snake up the tripod table)

Thanks Heather. The snake, was it hiding in the box? Has it bitten her? Why the teddy Bear? Its all symbolism I guess, Except for the main subject I never really think about it when painting, there's usually loads of changes made along the way and the painting sort of just grows, weird bits and all.

About the Artist
Robert Ward

Been painting and drawing in my spare time for fifty years give or take a year or two here and there and I did think retirement would give me more time to paint, how wrong can you be.
