Art Nouveau





This painting of my sister Rebecca was done from life in two sittings of about 3 hours. I had sooo much fun painting her and her dreamy deep set eyes. Her angelic face drew me to the style of art Nouveau. A style of painting/drawing led by Alphonse Mucha. Nature and figure seem to become one. Willowy trees and a soft cloudy skys echo the soft difussed window light on her skin. Thanks again rebecca! your beautiful!

Rebecca looks like a Young Women and beautiful. I love the soft colors you used. I also love the back round. It adds a nice feel. Kelly is planning on Monday. Keep up the great work Sandi!
Love, MOM
