Daily Deviation

Given 2014-03-06
At first one can clearly see the flawless face. But the artist takes it one step forward by adding the abstract movement to frame the subject. Syl 2 by TonHaring ( Featured by ArtByCher )
:iconsimone4390:
The face is painted very smooth and with a lot of skill. It looks very classic. Is it from life or from reference? Have you studied the old masters? Which technique did you use for the background?
I like the soft red and green colours on it. They are very bright but not too saturated as well. That is perfect. The hair and the background are from an other (artificial looking) material. As if she is looking through a gap. At first glance I had an association with the plastic wrap filter from photoshop. I wonder what is behind that 'filter' I think of a green garden. Then I thought it looks like a modern icon. Which is very original. I wonder if the details in the backgrond have a certain meaning. I see some hands and drops but unfortunately I cannot look at this full size. I think I would prefer the foreground and background to be more integrated. I think then the painting would be less striking maybe but the woman would look more worthy to be in a more natural environment.
What do you think?

Ain't that the truth? We do our best work when we shut everything out and just go for it.

Ja jsem tady registrovana ale roky jsem tu nebyla az dnes. Divam se, co bych zacala noveho, myslim styl. Nebavi me jen kopirovat predmety nebo figury. Urcite vis. co myslim. Promin, ze nepisi v anglictine, jestli ti to vadi rekni, priste si dam pozor.. Me jmeno tady je Tarahala a budu se sem vracet jak delas. Ja uz dlouho maluji digitaly, a jsem cechy jen zneuctivana v tomto smeru, tak jsem rada, ze jsem te na fb uvidela. "Kdyz nas bude vic, nebudem se bat vlka nic."hahaha...Neziji v cesku a zajima me, kde jsi se naucila tak solidni anglictine. Preji hodne stesti a tesim se na nove obrazky at uz zde nebo na fb. A gratuluji k uspesnemu kontraktu.

About time this received a Daily Deviation. Lovely abstracts swirling about the face; did you make all of those individually? Surreal indeed.
