Galatea of the Spheres by AmBr0 Galatea of the Spheres by AmBr0
Painting by Salvador Dalí made in 1952. It depicts Gala Dalí, Salvador Dalí's wife and muse, as pieced together through a series of spheres. The name Galatea refers to a sea nymph of Classical mythology renowned for her virtue, and may also refer to the statue beloved by its creator, Pygmalion.
The painting depicts the head and shoulders of Gala composed of a matrix of spheres seemingly suspended in space. It represents a synthesis of Renaissance art and atomic theory and illustrates the ultimate discontinuity of matter,the spheres themselves representing atomic particles.

I wanted to try something challenging and I thought that this painting from the international catalan master could be great without using ruler or compass.

So, you're just out there all free-handin' it? Yeah, great job! I commend you on choosing this subject. The man was intensely fastidious and had such unique power of detail and stretching the mind's eye. Truly, a master of inspired surreal method. ... and you captured it, beautifully. I must say, she does get a little lost without the background. The almost ghostly tones of her skin against the blue. I'm confident you could have pulled a nice, solid gradient in equal to the painting to set it off.
As always, Well done!

=D I thought that copying this painting could be perfectly possible but very few people could imagine something like that, then I realized that it's not an easy one and it's plenty of small details.
I spent time thinking about the possibility of making a background gradient but I thought it could be distracting between the colour gradient superimposed with the light-shading gradient that B&W can't always clearly define. But I think that the dark blue line in the bottom of the painting could help to reduce the lost feeling.
As always thanks for your time and your suggestion, I really appreciate :thanks:.
