    At last my vignette based upon the work of J-L Gerome is finished . Some time ago I posted some pictures of the sculpted figures ready to be painted .
    Halfway through I encountered a problem with the scale of the backgroud . The tiles and the joints between them on the walls were to large . So I had to redo them .
    Luckely I finished the fountain and some ascesoires so I could recycle them .
    As always the figures are made from milliput and duro . The scenery is made from plastic card and milliput . So are the fountain and the special shoes in front .
    Figure heads and hands are from the Hornet range. A small part of the sitting figure is from the Preiser range , heavely resculpted because of the poor casting quality ( plastic )
    The wooden construction used to sit on is made from the smalest plastic rods I could find (evergreen ) .
    All water effects are completed using Vallejo products.
    The painting job was done using Vallejo acrylics and oils .
    Painting the scenery as also a chalange . The most difficult thing is to give something a worn out dirty look ( for the walls ) as suggested in the original work . But not overdoing it is not easy .

    Nicely done!

    I like this for several reasons;
    - inspired by a an old masters effort
    - converting to a 3 d effort
    - simple civilian moment, still full of class and story.

    Still have this as an inspiring piece.

    thanks for sharing

    cheers

    Congratulations Marc this is a wonderful vignette full of artful mystery and seduction, but still gentile and modest. You've really captured a "moment in time".

    You have given this piece such a lovely atmosphere. One of the reason is the fantastic shading of the tiles.
