The Blue Veil 1898 after Edmund Charles Tarbell

Oil on 12"x12" panel, I worked from a photo of the original painting by American Impressionist Edmund Tarbell. When I saw this painting I was instantly struck by it's beauty and graphic yet painterly quality. I'm not often moved to recreate a painting by another artist but I was highly motivated here-I wanted to live with this painting, even if it was just my interpretation. Link to Tarbell: Wikipedia
