Queen Nefertiti in the grisaille technique

This oil painting on canvas was born during the very recent workshop with Philip Rubinov Jacobson & Mantra Cora. We were focusing this time on creating a portrait in the grisaille technique. Then we had a choice to work also with flesh tones, but in this case I decided to keep face in shades of grey because I liked this metallic look, and I added color in other areas. For the first time I got to work with gold leaf and I applied it to the headdress.
I worked with washes of color in the background, but it feels it's not completely finished. At the moment I have some other priorities to focus on and I will let for this piece to breathe, so the vision of how to complete it can clarify.

She is such a mysterious and powerful figure in the history. In my journey of awakening into the ancient remembering I would often connect to her family, I created before two artworks with one of her daughters. For me this is pointing us to our extra-terrestrial origins & the higher divine potentialities that we used to have. We are so much more than what we were taught, I believe we came from highly evolved civilizations.
I highly recommend delving into a book called "Initiation" by Elisabeth Haich, it will definitely expand your perspective on our journey. It is like an autobiography story, but going back many lifetimes, back into a very detailed memory of being initiated.

Happy weekend @astraeir, your painting is truly impressive, I love the aura of mystery and superiority that this queen has and I agree very much with her idea that we really do not know the truth nor our origin and her proposal about the book Initiation I think very tempting, I will try to save some money and find out if it is available in my language here in my country to buy it, I love this topic very much.

Thanks for showing us your amazing work it was lovely to see it. ;)

Thank's so much!;) I hope you can find the book in your language! <3

Very impressive artwork and for such an impressive personality. Queen Nefertiti along with her husband Akhenaten were true revolutionists of their time. Tried to free the people from the powerful priesthood and starting the religion of the one god may have set important future events at motion. I ve see in person the bust at Berlin Museum and it was a powerful experience, so perfect and beautiful:)

Thank's a lot! Yeah, they were definitely the system busters;) so great you got to see the bust in person!

mummies, pharaohs, cobras and pyramids, your very special drawing reminded me of all that Egyptian essence that I have known, fascinating every detail. Could it be that these principles that you mention are related to Egypt?
