I’ve been casting some virgin Mary statues this week. I want to make a few for my living room in an assortment of colours. If you’d like your own to paint or any colour take a look on my website http://www.whitebgallery.com
Where do you get your ideas from? Is it another artwork, wallpaper pattern, book etc… my latest arework is of Joan of Arc. I had seen a gold statue at Christmas in Paris by the louvre museum. I then saw the Dior spring/summer collection with its tarot and bee keeper designs. I decided to use some medieval stars inspired by the tarot cards. These may have small beads sewn into them. I am going to incorporate some text which will say, she’s more than a lady. I heard this in a Duran Duran song, girls on film. Because she definitely is, more than a lady.
I thought i’d share a slideshow of my new Joan of Arc painting (Incomplete) to show you the process. Hope this gives more of an idea how I work. I just need to complete the background and add some text then it’s finished
I’ve been working on a new artwork of Joan of Arc, which I have wanted to do for some time. I have used some iridescent paints for the halo and for the bronze statue. I will be layering the background with oil paint and adding some text. It is a long way from finished, but excited about doing this one.
