Mixed media on stretched canvas, 50X50 cm.
This painting applies for the Liquitex/Artfinder : "Muted collection competition"
I've used soft and muted colors, pastels tones, to match with the idea of contemporary french chic : discreet, soft, elegant, and a touch of nobility. I always keep in mind the interior of french noble houses, royal castles from the place where I live : the Loire valley.
The title of this artwork is a wink with the "Rococo style".
"Rococo style" is a european decorative style from XVIIIe century: profusion, delirious with a decorative aim, but with subtle colors like blue grey, antique pink, green olive, grey white, brownish green… not bright or vulgar colors, but assured, muted colors.
I used a very particular blue which we call in French “petroleum blue”: a hardly made green/blue indigo.
I also worked much the transparent colors. The white run-outs appear grey in transparency. They bring a more contemporary aspect to the artwork.
I used water media : markers, acrylic inks, watersoluble pencils, acrylic, gesso, pastels wax.
As you see on additional photos, this painting passed by several very different stages before arriving in its final state.
The painting is varnished.
