Artist's description:

Uplifting in its palette and intriguing in its pose. Are the lips whispering...? About to blow a kiss...? What do you see?

An original semi- impressionist acrylic painting. 3-4 layers of paint were needed to create the finished effect. The colours really pop and command attention. I kept the hues as pure as possible, blending on the surface rather than on a palette.

Lips are a thing of beauty and function, with the power to draw and hold attention, convey and alter emotional state. A simple smile can boost a person's mood!

Hand painted with precise mark-making, occasional loose strokes, and both dry and wet brushing to create the smooth flow of one colour into the next.

The speed of application of my style is slow going with a fine brush and colour change at every stroke, but some things cannot be rushed.


Materials used:

Textured art paper 300gsm, acrylic paints
