I started this project end of 2013, roughly it took me 4 to 6 months to complete. Painted vertical on a cotton canvas using acrylic medium, set against a background of dark blue with slight hint of black vertical gestural lines. She is painted in soft light cream white, her head slightly tilted as if she is deep in thought, eyes closed, right arm caresses against her chest, feathers painted in white and grey gracefully wrap her soft feminine and delicate body. I feel she shows compassion and mortality. High level of detail is shown throughout the painting and several layers of paint is applied gradually.
The inspiration behind this painting is the statue carved out by the Italian artist David Michelangelo. The statue that he created was made at Bologna in Italy.
Cotton canvas, brushes round and flat, artist quality acrylic paint, colours used cobalt blue, black, and naples yellow. It's an original. Signed and dated. Ready to be hanged with or without a frame. Sides of canvas are painted so framing is not necessary.
