Romance On The Vine
Painting - Acrylic & Gold Leaf On Gallery Wrap Canvas
After I decided how to pose the young man and woman embracing, becoming one with the trunk of the grapevine, I had to decide how to depict their shapes. I was so taken with their graceful, curvy, sensual shapes that I just let those features guide me in designing the shapes within their individual body shapes. The muscles and tissues were a starting point and then I just continued to play with those shapes. The blues, greens and violets are soothing to me. When I added the grape leaves, I knew they had to be decorated similarly to the grapevine trunk and the flowing earth beneath them. It was tedious but the gold leaf outlining everything was the final touch of glistening to this romance on the vine. I am amazed at how well the shiny gold-leaf was reproduced when I had the original scanned for reproductions. Imagine this image printed on shiny metal! The gold leafing will shine as it does in the original.
