An oil painting of Pegasus and Cassiopeia.

Pegasus and Cassiopeia
I wanted to make this painting look as classical as possible. Cassiopeia skin is painted in monochrome and the paint is very smooth. This creates contrast with her hair that was painted with thick paint over a dark under painting. Pegasus eyes have been built up into a pyramid so that they catch the light. I have tried to use the complementary colours yellow with violet and blue with orange.
