Art Series #17 - "Éffluerer" Oil Painting - My Compositions

Friday, July 13, 2018

In this Art Series post I have another one of my oil painting time-lapses for you! This piece is my favourite I've completed to date and in the time-lapse of it's creation I share about how I named it and the feeling/meaning behind it. I also talk about how I create my original compositions, and also about developing my art style and how I feel about having an art style.


As I mentioned above, this is my favourite piece of mine, and there are several things I like about it; the vibrancy of her silky blue top and pink lips, the illusion of the shine in her hair, the different colours in the shadows of the flowers, the delicacy and intimacy in the overall feel of the painting, but my absolute favourite part of this painting is a very subtle part and not one that stands out at first glance--or maybe it does to some like me--and that is the subtle blue glow, or silver lining, down her shoulder and back on the left side of the painting. This was the last thing I added to the painting, and when I did, it made the whole thing come to life, with one stroke! Am I allowed to swoon this much about my own painting?? Of course, as the creator, there are many things I would do better, at least in my mind, but I'm happy there are so many things I love about it. It can be hard to love your own artwork! I wonder how I'll feel about it in a few years after much more practice.



Thanks for watching the time-lapse of this oil painting that I am so proud of! I hope you enjoy this piece and the feelings I described in the video, the ones I want to evoke through this piece, are what you feel when you look at it! If you want to check out more of my work you can look at more of my Art Series Posts here, and I'll be back for another new Art Series post soon!
