The second in my series of paintings called "I Vampiri" (which is Italian for The Vampires) - a new line of paintings that feature vampire beauties inspired by Italian Baroque & Italian Renaissance themes and aesthetics. This second painting is called "I Vampiri: Il Liuto" (which means "The Lute") and she is lovely! Subtle colours and clothing style have a sort of renaissance painting feel to it, and I just love the lute! If you look closely too, you'll see little tiny fangs on both the girl and the skull.... I painted her for MegaCon, 2010 (sold the original there, but at least I have prints for you!). My own original acrylic painting.
