Nouveau-esque by jefita Nouveau-esque by jefita
My entry for 's coloring contest. I've always wanted to color one of her pieces and the contest was good incentive. I've been working on it off and on for a couple of weeks now and finally finished it.

I tried to keep with the nouveau theme suggested by the title and style of the picture, but I tweaked it a little to my own liking. I went with a little darker and slightly eastern twist. I chose lotus blossoms for the background as opposed to a more traditional flower, as I really love them.

Who knows how long I spent on this, off and on. Probably more than I should have. I don't know that I can compete with some of the other really nice pieces she's gotten so far.

She looks amazing - I'm so jealous!
The colors work really well together and contrast her skin
and her eyes just pop! Very well done! :D
