Additional Information

Information:

Original oil painting on canvas.

This canvas is part of my “Contentment” series exploring the relationship between inner peace, presence, nature and women. They all foster the idea of female contentment and the relationship they have with nature.

Meaning:

This artwork explores symbolism, and figurative work. The work depicts a peaceful sleep of a relaxed and laying lady wearing a see through dress. The figure is lying on Ivy which is a symbolic. Being an evergreen plant, this represents eternity, fidelity, and strong affectionate attachment, such as wedded love and friendship. As such, In this painting the ivy is symbolic of this woman’s everlasting friendship to herself. She is sleeping as a sign of self love calm and serenity. Therefore, creating a harmonious relationship between everlasting inner peace, self love and nature.

Method:

Oil canvas with layered paint. I started out by putting down base colours and then building up the skin colour and highlights in both the ivy and figure. The ivy was mainly worked on using a similar technique to Pre-Raphaelite translucent techniques. As such, i built up the ivy colour through glazes, imitating the effect of light falling on a subject and gives a depth that cannot be obtained by using colours mixed on a palette.
