Artist's description:

Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" painted in the 1400s is probably one of the most famous paintings of all time. Whenever in Florence, a trip to the Uffizi to see it hanging in all its glory is a must. This is the third in my Thank you Berthe (homage to Berthe Morisot) series where I attempt to follow the different styles adopted in famous paintings over the centuries. Only faces are painted and it is odd to note that even taken out of context in this way, the painting is immediately recognisable.
I loved painting this detail of Botticelli's Venus because it is so different from my work generally. The transparency of skin tones is something I find very special here.

The borders are painted light blue and the painting is ready-to-hang.

Materials used:

acrylic on canvas
