Art Nouveau Roses
Dee Van Houten
Painting - Gouache
The colors and lovely details in the face of this Art Nouveau lady appear soft and delicate, as her dreamy eyes gaze softly out at the viewer. She is holding a delicate bouquet of peach colored roses with satin ribbons gently caressing her pale peach wrap, which is draped off her shoulders.
Green leaves seem to be dancing behind the bouquet of roses, as they intertwine around the ribbons. Delicate Baby's Breath are also seen within the bouquet. Large roses are tied within her stylized hair that just touches her creamy shoulders. Detailed, hand-painted roses appear in the upper corners above the arch shape. The background is painted in a jewel-like teal color.
This painting is sold with a pale peach double French matt (not shown in this image). French matting is the art of applying watercolor washes and lines painted in unlimited shade variations and widths to a matted border in order to embellish the subject in the painting. It is a lovely touch to the overall painting. (framing not included)
Shipping costs not included.
