Lady Of The Stairs

Lady Of The Stairs - Richard Smith - RSMITHINGS.comAlmost exactly one year ago I snapped this photo of a stairwell and only in the past day has it occurred to me that it would be composition material. Amazing how time can grow an idea. The facial features are of a model I commissioned to do some portraiture elements. Add to the mix some plays on symmetry and a spacey reflection from my bathroom sink, along with plenty of hue manipulation, and this is the result. See the source components here.
