|Momma's Heart Beat|
We are talking about Relationship here... and what is trying to be said in that. Move down to the painting... "Summer Patience" and "Gottcha"....
Its fun reminicing... as mother day has just past... and Fathers day is soon to come. Its also fun remembering that when we paint a relationship portrait... many many many times its so much more than the figures before us that we are looking to share/illustrate. The lesson of summer patience was inspired by a favorite painting of mine done by John Singer Sargent "The Daughters Of Edward Darley Boit" which has often been noted as "Arguably the most psychologically compelling painting of Sargent's career" In it relationship of childhood is illustrated in the portrait of the four daughters. We can all take a lesson from the master work of John Singer Sargent, that often when we paint a portrait... the relationship is as much a factor as the models themselves.
That the goal in these relationship paintings from the past of what is being reflected from them... Well I hope. These last two here: "Reflections" and "Exploring The Ins And Outs Together" show two completely different ways of doing that with figures in your painting. One the figures are completely in a silhouette, the other, they are in an equal detail with the landscape... Both paintings use the surroundings as much as a part to tell the story as the figures do though... Another lesson taken from John Singer Sargent. Well, as the MOG i have much to do in these next couple of weeks. Will not be a LOT of Plein Air Painting... but am working diligently on the most significant relationship painting that have ever painted. Hope to be able to unveil it the 10th of June. Will be sharing more about that after the Wedding. May it be an UP day for you all! In EVERY WAY. K
