Rhonda Ferling, romantic contemporary realism from Australia
“I try to capture the essense of the sensual women, here in this study, full of attitude, but also somehow fragile. I have used some personal additions here, my own intimate apparel, and accessories, those not normally associated with this high end model study. No photoshop here, I only sketch out firstly with a piece of chalk, then when I am satisifed with the results, only then do I start to add paint, and only oils on very small brushes, also I like to blend in as I go so the whole process does take some time.”
