oil on canvas 90 x 70 cm, finally done..well in fact is always one more detail to work on, but it's above my patience :))

Any comment and crit is more than welcome.

Inspired a little bit by Michael Hussar's works, the children is inspired by one of Leonardo's Madonna.

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-09-24
:iconroseforlorn:
First off, congratulations on the daily deviation. This is absolutely divine. Not only have you captured a dali-esque style in the stylings of your table, but you've added something modern in the handling of the characters in your work (make-up and birds included, sexuality as a delicate sidenote).... while then referencing French and Medieval art. I'm enthralled by the flow of the piece, which references the ... lets call it the "nipple notion" of the pomegranate, actual nipple and then lemons, which follow the angling of the arms to create a circular dynamic to the piece. I think, as my opinion, that your piece could have been enhanced by having a slight (barely noticeable) color reference in your white colorings to the rest of the piece. I can appreciate the attempt, but its not enough. That being said... I'd like to re-emphasize that this is a very delicate subtle balance. This may also be achieved by incorporating some of the pinks in the figure into the bottom left of the piece. Unfortunately there is a stark contrast between the bottom left and the remainder of the piece (you have no mention of pink in the table setting nor yellow in the figure). I can understand and appreciate the juxtaposition you may want to achieve in doing this but it alienates the realms. Slight hues the viewer may not even be aware of will be your hero here. Of course, thank you for considering my input, but I couldn't resist. I love this.
What do you think?

that crab <3 omg that crab.
this is just wonderful. a breath of fresh air to see Traditional art like this.
all the pieces i have seen are perfect. this one as well. there are so many new things to see each time you look.. that you want to look for a long time.
also so many stories to be told XD

however one thing does puzzle me. i see nails(maybe).. on the table.. but have no clue as to what they are for :)

wonderful job!

erie and very telling, like a classical piece there is a heavy amount of iconography, yet in a more modernist sense the style and content make such qualities previously stated all the more intriguing... kudos

I feel like I'm looking at the pursuit of someone else's happiness and dreading what that might mean for me. Um, kinda like I'm looking into what hell should be and wondering if its heaven in a bad disguise. Not that I mean that in a bad way, mind you, this is just a stunning and fascinating piece of work you have here. The repetition of the red and the super white of the woman, make you think that happiness is either had or not obtained at all and any 'pursuit' of it is just an illusion, implying that all happiness is just someone else's form of misery? Hmmm...I'm not sure if I'm making sense anymore...in either case I really like this.

Keep up the great work. :D

Very stunning work. When I first saw this on the DD thing, I was originally going to bypass it since it originally didn't seem to be something I'd like in art. I am very glad I decided to click on the picture and take a good look instead. =) Congrats on the DD.
