A bit of a colour experiment. Acrylics on A4 mixed media paper.
I was asked by a lot of people if I would take similar commissions. And yes, sure. It's fun to turn a drawing into a wall.
I was mostly listening to the OST of Episode Ignis during painting. I adore the violin part that sets in at 1.20~!
I can dive so deep into the details of this the satisfaction tickles me.
Let me start with the creature, since it's the most obvious indulgence:
We know you do wings very well, but there is novelty in this one I can't quite grab hold of.
Maybe it's because the lion sits flat on the wall and therefore the seperation of layers you achieve with your outlines comes across more naturally.
The hero of this painting is the greenery.
From a painters point of view anyway, because there is natural switching through contrasts without a noticable split.
Warm and cold is most prevalent here, as is sharp and soft.
I find myself scanning through the growth and how you placed each leaf so precisely.
Only the wall seems to be bothering me, because of lack of variation in shade.
Maybe a soft liquid wash with different hues of red and ocre, just to drive some parts into background.
The lion would have received greater significance also.
As it stands the most dimensional part is the tip of the wing.
(I love your drawings continues like this: D)
And, I don't know if you did this on purpose, but there are cracks in the regular gray stone, but not on the white figure itself, so it suggests some sort of enchantment.
There is just a hint of orange to the figure, so it leaves you wondering whether it had some terracotta parts squished into the space in the wall to make the smoother lines that were then painted white, or if it is simply dirt that shows up better against the white background than the ordinary stone. And I completely disagree with the critique that says the stone should be warm colored- the overall tone of this white and gray is nice, with the color only really showing up in the greenery.
Awesome art! My imagination is going wild with a story behind that one!
This work is very cool.
Do you have another works like this one?
I mean, that seems a sculpture in the wall, church glass art, etc.
I'm still baffled that this is done in traditional media
somehow that just makes it exceedingly more impressive
Hm, that is a good idea. I think the next time I will try some added waterdamage or such. ^^ Thanks for the tip!
The texture is beautiful!!!
I Always LOVE THAT!!!
Hope to see you do more of that kind of animal!
