Latest painting in "Phases de la Lune" series

Just finished this painting which I've entitled "Desire". I had quite a few distractions along the way, so this one seemed to take longer than normal. Tattoo style on the arm is a little different to what I've done before, but I think the organic forms really work well with this piece and the flow of the irises.

I did quite a bit of photographic documentation over the course of this painting so you can see the complete progress below from start to finish.

Prints are available on Society6.
