Aren’t green coconut overrated? he he I had such a good time doing this. I enjoyed playing with the light on the wonderful reference by Lisilk at WetCanvas. Before I did the splatter on it, it just seemed a little flat. Isn’t it amazing what a little splash of random color can do?
About Ivan Turgenev
Russian novelist Ivan Turgenev, celebrated for his dark, realistic novels about Russian life, is best known for the novel Fathers and Sons, about the conflicting ideologies between generations. He was born in 1818 to a wealthy Russian family. He and his brother were raised by an abusive mother who was rumored to have smothered one of her serfs. He rose to fame with A Sportsman’s Sketches, which may have influenced the Tsar to free the serfs. He died in France in 1883.
