Joan of Arc: On the Field by DonatoArts Joan of Arc: On the Field by DonatoArts
I have just finished this painting of Joan of Arc in time for exhibition at IlluxCon next weekend, November 8-10. The image was begun as a demonstration a couple of years ago at the Society of Illustrators on how to paint reflective objects and portraits. I had an outstanding model and friend to model for Joan, Irene Gallo, the head Art Director at Tor Books! Thanks again Irene for making this all possible!

Everything is there except the face.  The face is too masculine and looks like young Keanu Reeves.

Well, you certainly did a fantastic job on the reflections, especially considering the setting that you put her in. Shiny metal seems like one of the most complicating things to paint!

Escaped the stake only to end up at the Gallo....

Very nice work. The fairly subtle halo is a nice touch, and I loke the subdued colours.

Those reflections are lovely. I have to agree, Ms. Gallo made an outstanding model for Joan. This a beautiful piece.
