This was done as a present for Jude, a wonderful friend and fellow artist whose link can be found on my main page. I have long admired the art nouveau style and Mucha's work in particular. So this was an intertesting experiment. Not sure I'm happy with the outcome, it seems to lack delicacy and the colours are too strong. Not to mention her face seems distorted because I made the mistake of changing it half way through painting. But not a bad first effort, it gave me way more respect for Mucha and all his contemporaries.
