Bouguereau's painting Tricoteuse

After seeing Yumedust's coloured colouring book page on her DA, I decided to do one of my own. I settled on Esmerelda, of which I coloured using the colour pallete from Bouguereau's (yes the same artist as Yume, but hes one of my fav's so i figured it was ok ;p) painting Tricoteuse (the first image). Intially I wanted to use his painting "Rest" for the colours (I have it on my wall) but decided to go with a more restricted colouring scheme.

Oh and for the record...digitally painting stone is freaking hard without using existing textures. I did use a combination of dry brushes and pastels in Corel Painter 9.5 which did help, but got tiring after a while. No photo textures used and only reference used was the Bouguereau painting.

5ish hours
Corel Painter 9.5

Ryan Wood and Sam Nielson have also done the same with Belle and Jasmine pages!
