Painting - Painting Digital Impressionism
I started this with a sketch of a reference image intending it to be hyper-realistic, but like many things 'art', they take on a life of their own and before long I had an impressionistic style of realism which I later permitted the artwork to dictate how it would appear.
Nostalgic, dreamy, tender and warm with a kiss of sunlight - everything that spring brings to us.
As William Shakespeare wrote-:
From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud-pied April, dressed in all his trim,
Hath put a spirit of youth in everything,
That heavy Saturn laughed and leaped with him,
Yet nor the lays of birds, nor the sweet smell
Of different flowers in odor and in hue,
Could make me any summer's story tell,
Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew.
Nor did I wonder at the lily's white,
Nor praise the deep vermilion in the rose;
They were but sweet, but figures of delight,
Drawn after you, you pattern of all those.
Yet seemed it winter still, and, you away,
As with your shadow I with these did play.
Rather romantic, but Shakespeare often inspires me.
