This painting is unique,and not usual just because have deep course ,meaning,and painted with mix media.
I start from the media I use,first layer and start with egg tempera,do background all black.just because Leonardo Da'Vinci says : "everyone artist first layer must painting in black just because from darkness light is born" this words have a deep means for me and for others take thought.
Egg tempera i made from egg and charcoal.
My next step was gouache.I paint with masterclass Russian painting gouache rose and cross bracelet. Then rose was complete and bracelet,i use acrylic paint ,and finish the book and skull.I use oil paint to,but only for my signature.
Now I tell you about the meaning of all this detail and whats they means.
Start from rose: rose is symbol of beauty.body beauty,life beauty,beauty of soul.
Cross bracelet have a meaning of faith,everyone of use believe in something or someone,no matter what,but they have.
Book: it's the meaning of us wisdom and knowledge and the last one ..
Skull...Skull have widely meaning but from my look and meaning on this painting skull is mean mortality ,all we someday gonna die,but die just us body,not us soul,I believe in reancarnation ,and skull have other meaning : the new beginning .This is mean that if we die,this not mean that is the end ,is just the beginning,this life is just like school ,all life we take the exam,who life and feel that to do what heart say,It goes a good way.
Before I painting this I thinking very long about it,and painting took me half year to create ,and looking now in old master style :) good day everyone and hope you like my paint and description to :)
