Here is the full painting with the background slightly altered, but retaining Waterhouse’s impressionist brushwork. The face is re-createded to make it stronger and more sensuous. Waterhouse’s original face is washed out and fragile looking (see Boreas part Three). The oil paint is badly cracked. I reworked the upper areas of the shawl to create more of a feeling of flow and movement. Of course I left his signature intact in the lower left corner. I spent hundreds of hours on this re-creation as a labour of love, making it available for download. However, in Oct 2011 I visited a gallery in Vancouver where they have a poorly done “original oil” painted by someone in Vietnam. Its price was approximately $500. As of Nov 2011, I have decided to make this version available for sale as a high resolution archival print for $200. Please visit my online gallery at http://www.artbyinglis.com and send me an e-mail if you are interested in a print. Any size less than 48″ wide can be printed.  Link to the site on the bottom of this page.
