Serafina – Original Portrait Painting


Serafina – 6 x 6 inch acrylic painting on Ampersand Gessobord (this painting is reserved)

I started this portrait last week, and finished it up this week. I love her soft look, paired with the dramatic color of the roses, her dark hair, and royal blue background. In my Studying Under the Masters class that I had in the spring of last year, we learned how Matisse used motifs, patterns and designs in many of his paintings. It’s reminded me to go that extra mile with my backgrounds, and add a little punch of something, to make it striking. 


Being a brunette myself, I’m a bit partial to these raven haired beauties. Serafina and her lady friends, are now in the online Etsy shop, ArtcyLucy Studio.
