Against the Bricks -Paint Party Friday


I love the style of Art Nouveau.  I loved the look of it before I knew the name of the style.  I have my wonderful brother-in-law Paul to thank for educating me about the artwork of that era.  He lives in France now.  Alphonse Mucha, one of my greatest inspirations, moved to Paris in 1887. 


Above you see the lovely Jaymasee, a DA stock model.  I love her pose and the flowers behind her.  The drape of her costume is exquisite.  In my drawing, I think I should have drawn her a little taller! 

Have a lovely weekend, sweet Friends, and Happy Paint Party Friday!

Love the added architecture behind her and the feminine style of her graceful arms and flowing gown. Great job.
