Perfect model to check up the fusion of reflective metal and backdrop. I might say that reflective metal creates better illussion with the backdrop in reality, than without. (context matters:) ) Hope you like it!

The model is from Terrible Kids Stuff. Painted with oils, both the model and the background.

Hope you like it!

    Beautiful… It’s good to see another one of your ‘figure-backdrop’ compositions. I think it’s very true what you say about reflective surfaces and context via the backdrop (and possibly true in general with effects of reflected light in shadows, lighting and colour etc.).
    I also think your way of painting with oils helps facilitate the illusion.. I recently tried painting polished reflective metal and remembered thinking how much less tedious and more pleasant it might have been if I had learned to paint with oils.
