Alice and Luigi Waltz by suburbanbeatnik Alice and Luigi Waltz by suburbanbeatnik
My latest commission! This is for a romantic gaslight adventure set in Gilded Age New York, where a ward of J.P. Morgan, Alice Larsen, falls in love with a Hungarian immigrant, one Luigi Szabo. She's supposed to marry this other gent in the background, who is Displeased she is waltzing in such an intimate fashion with this foreigner. 

I used acrylics as usual for this, but I experimented a little with acrylic inks to add more punch to the art nouveau-esque decorative borders and shadows. And speaking of art nouveau, I was inspired by the Biscuits Champagne ad by Mucha. 

Alice’s gown was based on this gown by Worth in the Met collection.
