Peter Zentjens said...

Gorgeous work again Patricia,
I so love that natural, “botanic” flow in your work.

PERUGINA ART said...

Thank you so much Ana for your encouragement!!


Hey Pete!! Thanks my friend, your support is much appreciated. Your comments always leave me feeling encouraged, this one is no exception. ‘Botanic flow’ works for me. This was indeed a bit of a surprise when working the hair – i felt it was the right way to go in the end, leaving the white of the paper with subtle shading to suggest depth. Sometimes we need to just go with ‘the flow’. Thanks again and hope you are finding time to paint.

The lyricism of lines is a real feature here PG and quite remarkable imo! This work seems to extend the notion of a 'Celtic knot' in new asymmetric directions(!) and with an equal feeling of balance (yet more subtle here). PG, the twisting strands, and the way you have painted these as *interwoven* and also varying the strand widths along their lengths, provides a sense of volume, of spatial depth. The lyric *melodic* curves brings to mind polyphonic music. Another triumph!!
Best wishes,
wayne

SERGIG said...

formidabile! sei una vera artista in tutti i sensi!;-))

PERUGINA ART said...

Hi Wayne, my humble apologies for this very tardy reply.
As always, I am most grateful of this support you extend to me. It is always very interesting to read your thoughts, knowing that you draw on your many years of experience as an artist as well as your vast knowledge in art. In a practical sense, this interaction leads me to research i.e. did not know much about ‘Celtic knots’ despite having seen them about (which are very beautiful in their geometry and balance) – thank you.
Knowing these beautiful interwoven patterns are called as such, I now have come to understand your comment more fully, ’in new asymmetric directions and with an equal feeling of balance (yet more subtle here).’That you say ’another triumph’ is much too kind a comment Wayne.
Thank you again, and I hope to get back to ’the painting’ soon.
My best to you also.
pg :)
